Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Smoked cheese, milk chocolate, cardamom and menthol, with a hint of raspberry jam.
Palate: Orange, smoke and dark chocolate gives this dram some balls. It is a rich offering packed with flavour and enhanced by the smoke.
Finish: Forest firesmoke and moreorange creams.
Comment: Rather delicious. A good,strong peaty offering with real personality.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense, slightly prickly. Rich fruity aromas. Ripe peaches. Light smoke. Like walking in an orchard on a crisp morning with a bonfire in the distance. Poached pears. Gets creamy on time.
Palate: Crisp, dry with a fizzy feel. Teases the tongue. Sherbety. Orange juice. The smoke is not so perceptible on the palate. Just in the back. Water cutsdown the alcohol bite and brings outcreamy flavours.
Finish: Warm, fizzy, dry with a gingery spiciness.
Comment: The dram of dreicht days, after a long walk in the morning drizzle.
