Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Deep, luscious liquid orange, barley and toasted oak. Subtle peat smoke along with straw, coffee, light treacle and tar. The peated component appears to have some age.
Palate: Oily barley followed by orange, honey, apricot, apple and vanilla oak. Showing slight maturity with peat smoke coming through, becoming quite medicinal.
Finish: Long with lingering mature oak, violet, peat smoke and a touch of camphor.
Comment: That’s how to use peated malt in a blend! Superb progression.
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: A complex wee beastie, with smoke, oak and spirit (from the strength) working to push through a bold and well-matured aroma that delights and invites.
Palate: Big smoke and I usually like that, but I feel it might be masking a well-matured product. I could do with tasting more of the oak-aged spirit, and less of the smoke. To be fair, water unlocks some of that.
Finish: Lovely finish, where the smoke subsides and some oak tones come through.
Comment: It’s not often I say this, but I’d like to have less smoke, more oak.
