Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Wood embers/charcoal then a lift of fennel tops. Malt increases the smoke but reveals a stony heart: drying seaweed, bleached bones and tar.
Palate: A huge hit of smoke deepening into hot roads. Water spreads flavours, bringing out a fishy oiliness balancing the dry smoke.
Finish: Oatcake crunch, smoked red pepper.
Comment: The reserved nose is compensated by a lively, palate. Laphroaig is bang on form.
8.3
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Lemon syllabub and antiseptic mouthwash. Ash, in the grate of a dead fire. Blackcurrant and aniseed. A little limey sourness with water, lemon pepper and maybe coriander. Barbeque sauce and coriander.
Palate: Oily, ashy and peppery.
Finish: Drying and peppery.
Comment: A foody whisky that is a lip-smacking and moreish. Almost Thai at times.
