Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Dark, pungent and malty with manure, peat, tar, fish oils and wood spices. Superb depth and complexity with cigar leaf and gritty but soft tannins.
Palate: Malty with dark honey, coffee, walnut shell, subtle peat and gritty tannins. Mouth-filling with violets, dark chocolate and gentle mature, Armagnac-esque dried fruit.
Finish: Malty and fishy with lingering prunes, walnut, sherry wood spice and salt.
Comment: Classic, oozing character and class. If you love this style of whisky, then it’s a must buy!
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Dark chocolate with sea salt give way to Parma ham and gala melon, like a vintage dinner party canapé selection. Really inviting, with the gala melon the most inviting part.
Palate: Melon notes mixed with a hint of smoke and some bacon. These shouldn’t work, but really do, proving that Campbeltown really is halfway between Lowlands and Islay.
Finish: The smoke bursts into life here, and this could end up being an island whisky.
Comment: Everything that is great about Campbeltown. Curious and flavour-bending!
