Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet and smoky:red fruits & woodsmoke,jelly babies and peat. Some cream soda then frazzles (bacon snacks).Even smokier with water. With water a floral edge to the smoke and boiled sweets.
Palate: Just a touch of artificial perfume on the tip of the tongue which knocks it down a point or two. Floral with good bite and grip.
Finish: Fruit jelly and lightsmoke.
Comment: Substantial and well balanced (bar that perfumed note).
7.9
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Phenolic. Creosote. Smokes rises slowly. Wet dog.Burning straw. Smoked cooked salmon. Cow'sbreath. Hint of mint.
Palate: Oily,mouth coating. Sweetness adds to that feel of thickness. Then dry spices and a touch of wood stiffentastebuds. Needs water to make a better balance.
Finish: Dry,slightly rough.
Comment: The palate is not as smoky as the nose. An interesting dram if not completely balanced.
