Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Bitter chocolate and fudge pralines. Toasted nuts with late salt and pepper.
Palate: Astonishingly toffeeish, then toasty. The distracting richness of these flavours introduces a shock of contrast when the seaweed and characteristic volcanic flavours suddenly erupt.
Finish: An explosion in a gale.
Comment: Sensational (both literally and figuratively).

Taster   Doug McIvor
Nose: Sulphury, deep and honeyed with a peppery character and traces of wet labrador.
Palate: Bursting with prickling sweetness and teasingly reticent to subside. Eventually the pepperiness allows an infusion of soft peatiness to infiltrate.
Finish: Gently and soothingly fades with all characteristic intact.
Comment: Talisker bigger though slightly calmer than ever. And rather more-ish.
