Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: There's an initial whiff of glue but then the smoke builds. This time it's tar and creosote,liquorice and a lightly fragrant note. Water reveals bay leaves and drying fishing nets.
Palate: Very sweet start,patisserie,melon then it shifts gear and becomes kiln like (dusty) with pipe tobacco.
Finish: Fresh fish oatcakes and after an age, wellies.
Comment: This has an extra dimension and added energy. Beautiful balance.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A more rounded peat reek than the previous dram. Slight plastic edge, damp seaweed and wet pebbles.
Palate: Sweet at first then moves into a more earthy notes.
Finish: The smoke comes in waves.
Comment: Islay in a glass,it will take you back there instantly.
