Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Peat is the first element to hit the nose which is backed with freshly cut grass, smoked apple, and shisha pipes lined up on the Edgware Road.
Palate: That classic Islay style of vanilla, peat and tobacco. It’s hard to get that wrong, and this one works well.
Finish: More of the peat and vanilla, with a hint of cooking apple and cinnamon on the death.
Comment: A fine example of a punchy, loud peated blend.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Tarry and slightly meaty with dusty peat, violets and fish oils. Some pleasantly sweet barley underpins and with time it becomes gently medicinal
Palate: The natural oils dampen the complexity a little but there’s a good depth of white fruit, subtle, dusty peat, tar, cinnamon and rock salt.
Finish: Phenomenally salty. Add to that a little bittering from the oak and that’s pretty dry!
Comment: I can feel the salt crystals forming on my tongue after that one!
