Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Big, soft, smokiness
Palate: Assertive. Attention-grabbing. Lively acidity. The faintest dash of malt vinegar. Malty. Bittersweet.
Finish: Long, warming.
Comment: Bring on the kippers.
8.5
Taster   Ian Wisniewski
Nose: Gentle waft of creosote and embers, above which a jasmine flower blossoms, accompanied by pear drops, linseed notes and a hint of vanilla.
Palate: Luscious sweetness with creamy crème caramel, background waft of sweet, earthy peat and chargrilled notes, before jasmine tea.
Finish: Creamy crème caramel and digestive biscuit sweetness with a waft of dry peatiness.
Comment: Sweet-dry-savoury-fruit balance, intense but elegant. A dram with drama.
