Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Quite heavy sweet notes - dates and figs - initially, before malt and faint smoke is detected.
Palate: Thick mouthfeel, red grapes, more complex soft fruits and smoke develop with water.
Finish: Gentle, some peat, balanced by sweeter malt notes, but plums linger too insistently.
Comment: Complex and curious!

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Firm, concentrated start. Floor wax, cigar smoke. Then a strange artificial perfume: attar of roses, orange blossom water, lavender.
Palate: The essency, gin like, notes continue. Then smoke and a nice hit of red fruits.
Finish: Soft, light smoke.
Comment: Just plain weird. Don't know whether to dab it behind my ears or drink it.
