Tasting notes
Taster   Peter Mulryan
Nose: Liniment and farmyard.
Palate: Honey on hot porridge, before a mushroom cloud of peat blows your head off.
Finish: A rollercoaster ride of pepper, huge amounts of billowing smoke, then vanilla, mint and choc fudge.
Comment: I just love this un-chill filtered version; it's fat, it's loud and it's fun. In this price bracket, there are very few Scottish single malts that can match it.
9.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Muted nose before vanilla, nuts, violet and a mix of estery notes and perfumed peat smoke. Kippers.
Palate: A very sweet start, lemon barley water, then the smoke builds in intensity, perfumed, touch of sheepskin. Good intensity.
Finish: Long, smoky. Slightly hot.
Comment: Not surprisingly the punchiest - and the peatiest of these two.
