Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A rich tapestry of subtle but confident peat and oak interwoven with a sexy malty sweetness.
Palate: The peat rises early to state the dram's style. A fine iodiney stratum manages to stay the course, offering a peaty pulse as sweeter malt notes arrive.
Finish: Quite long with echoes of peat and roast Columbian coffee but a very well controlled vanilla.
Comment: A malt lacking in complexity perhaps but certainly not in class.
8.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Flowery. Very herbal. Bay leaves. Fragrant.
Palate: Peppercorns, but also some creamy sweetness. Parsley.
Finish: More parsley, and very peppery.
Comment: Seems to have faded slightly with age.
