Taster   Gavin D. Smith

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Pungent. Acetone, linseed oil/putty, olive oil, canvas, squid ink even apple. Briny (scallop shell, fishmonger) Quite oaky.
Palate: Mouth-coating and smooth. Beeswax, lanolin, pepper, dry smoke. Needs time.
Finish: Rich and tight.
Comment: Has all of Port Ellen's great length, oiliness (and reserve).
