Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: A touch of the sea, with salty peated notes and an open medicine cupboard. Then there’s salted caramel chocolate.
Palate: Far more fruit appears, with crisp green apple skin and zesty orange. Then there’s some homemade toffee. After that the sea returns, bringing more salty peat.
Finish: A lovely medium finish that leaves you with no doubt that it’s a peated dram.
Comment: Like a day at the seaside wrapped up in a bottle.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: A whack of woodsmoke and After Eight mint chocolates. There’s some cucumber and pear drop. Umeshu plum and watermelon. A sweet mushroom note lingers in the back.
Palate: Light bodied, but a little hot. Somewhat medicinal. Retronasal rubber glove aromas. Iodine and shellfish salinity. In time, toffee sweetness and pear drop. Water brings out a touch of sour cream.
Finish: Medium, ending on hot smoked salmon and green apple.
Comment: I suspect those bromophenols are working hard here. This will divide opinion.
