Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A little peat hit up front, really sweet smoke to it. Almost leaf mulch, cornflakes with almond milk. Cider poached pears. Peat grows, becoming wood fires, flatbread cooking on a hot skillet.
Palate: Big sweetness, smoked venison and fatty bacon. Lots of milk chocolate and smoked black tea. Hot smoked salmon slices.
Finish: Medicinal smoke builds, with underlying barley sweetness.
Comment: Glorious stuff. Lovely integration of peat and sweetness. Certainly one to bring in a hip flask for a long forest walk.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Deep smoke. Really savoury and almost wooded. You've just inhaled a load of bonfire. A mulch vegetal note. Some more wet earth. Liquorice dwells.
Palate: More of that ashen smoke comes to the fore, wrapping up hints of white fruit. A cured, salted ham note finishes the palate off.
Finish: Lingers with a smokey, yet satisfying intent. Fills the mouth.
Comment: A little bit of intrigue on the palate, although it doesn't quite take off. Would be an excellent intro to smokier whiskies.
