Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Fish market, light smoke and flowers. Weetabix and bourbon biscuits. Very intriguing.
Palate: The chocolate hit is immediate. Explosive smoke ignites in the middle. Deep and quite rugged. Well put together.
Finish: Long, gently smoky.
Comment: Water smooths it down, but the rugged edge is what makes this a winner.
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Grubby and leathery initially, with a mushy old orange and a bit of woodsmoke. With water a bit of soapiness came up.
Palate: Woodsmoke to the fore, with some baked apple.
Finish: A little burnt plastic.
Comment: Some off-notes which I really didn't like, although the smokescreen saved it.
