Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Sweet pipe tobacco and cherry candy. Smoky barbeque sauce, chipotle and paprika. Roasted sweet potato and balsamic. Some fruits of the forest, too.
Palate: Medium bodied. Smoky bacon crisps, strawberry sauce and Maraschino cherry with bitter dark chocolate. A touch of fresh ginger.
Finish: Medium length. The smoky bacon lingers.
Comment: An unusual but complex dram that’s well worth trying.
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Smokiness that is like creosote, cooking fish over hot coals, then forest floor with pine needles scattered and heather honey.
Palate: A combination of smokiness and iodine, a little confusing. Then comes the spice, giving rye heat with clove. Tobacco leaf and sweet peas, then some creamy vanilla that’s wiped out by the heat.
Finish: Medium to long, mainly spicy, with a little smokiness lingering.
Comment: The delicacy I would like is missing at present, it’s very hot and very smoky. Could be interesting for a smoked sweet cocktail.
