Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Charcoal: burnt toast, charred sticks on a bonfire with light oil behind. Dry grass –somewhat Brora like. With water there’s a rooty iris/dirty underwear note.
Palate: For all its strength it holds well with tarry/oily smoke, olive oil. Liquorice. Great length. Dry and firm but just lacking some balancing sweetness.
Finish: Crisp and malty/oakcake.
Comment: Intriguing but just a little too dry.
7.8
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Peaty, that medicinal twinge. Germoline, tarred ropes, almost smoked ham and kippers.
Palate: Very hot, milk chocolate, Maltesers, a little sweetness and oily feel.
Finish: Sooty and dry.
Comment: Big alcohol burn, which with water reveals more medicinal notes.
