Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fragrant, salty. The sea begins to emerge. Very fresh.
Palate: Powerful. Intense clean sweetness. Coconut. Mint.
Finish: Mint toffee. Hot peppermint. Late saltiness on the front of the tongue. Extraordinarily long.
Comment: Scores extra points for complexity.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Straw/gold. A good mix of spume, sweet fruit, leather, dried grass and light toffee.
Palate: A smooth sweet start then a blast of flavour dried herb, salt spray, smoke, moss, toffee apple.
Finish: Very long, some coconut.
Comment: A worthy replacement for the previous cask vatting, another complex Campbeltown beauty.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Fresh. Black olive, hot gorse/coconut then a tickle of smoke and some lemon notes. Green oak, tangerine and a gently oily quality.
Palate: Silky soft feel. Coconut cream/milky coffee. Brine, oily but zesty with sooty smoke. Hits top gear half-way through. Subtle.
Finish: Lightly sooty.
Comment: Your starter for 10. A classic.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fragrant. Balsamic, herbal. Touch of eucalyptus. Dry hay, meadow flowers. Creamy. Developing on buttery notes. Hint of marshmallows.
Palate: Chewy. Less sweet than expected from the nose. Sour apples with the astringency of the skin.
Finish: Spicy, slightly tangy. Drying on oaky notes.
Comment: The nose is lighter and more subtle than the palate. A dash of water tones down the flavours. Disappointing.
