Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Ever-changing. Intense, seaside aromas and dense peaty chimney-like smokiness. Dry bracken, hazelnut, sugared almond with lifted fragrant notes: Orange/kumquat, lemon zest.
Palate: Immediate smoke. Vibrant and intense, the peat balancing citrus oils and spiciness. Savoury note.
Finish: Smoky with a little orange muscat.
Comment: Difficult to mark as the next sample will be totally different. A thing of fascination and warped genius.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruit wrestling with oak. Caramelised pineapple. Vanilla toffee. Cider cellar, rooty peat and mushroom.
Palate: Unexpected sharpness. Very peppery. Surprisingly dainty kippery smokiness. Gets a little smoother with water.
Finish: Sergeant Pepper in control. Slowly losing ground to a milder tone.
Comment: A loud lad whose tone needs softening.
