Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Immediate peatiness. Turfy rather than marine. Phenolics, macadamia nut, horchata. Light meaty note. Sweet centre.
Palate: Light smoke lying above firm, young grassy, notes. Beech nuts, heather. Silky feel.
Finish: Good length. Drifting smoke.
Comment: This seems to have the peatiness more to the fore than in the past.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Cider. Burnt apple tree. A rustic bouquet. Cow-shed. Distant smokiness. Earthy roots. Freshly baked multi-grain bread. Sultanas. A seashore echo.
Palate: Smooth and soft. Too soft. Sweetness thickens mouthfeel and taste. Nutty. Wood is there, not dominating but blurring the flavours.
Finish: Slightly spicy, sweet. Liquorice. Lacks elegance.
Comment: The nose is lively but the palate is put to sleep by sweetness.
