Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Christmas cake mix. All spice. There is also evidence of phenols, though not peat or smoke, more like oil paints or floor polish.
Palate: Some burnt buns, a rich underlying raisin toffee sweetness and a grassy peat.
Finish: Light rubberiness and some more of that peat, although in subtle quantities.
Comment: A big spirit tempered by a characterful cask. Very enjoyable.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Big and oily but with a wild fruit character: rowanberry jelly, tomato purée, Madeira cake.
Palate: Drier than expected with a peppery kick. The waxiness is immediately there, clinging to the tongue while the smoke emerges half-way along. Great length and best with a drop of water.
Finish: Rich, clinging lightly smoked.
Comment: Elegant and highly individual. Takes no prisoners.
