Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Musty. A deserted factory with wet newspaper and cigarette butts ground out on the dusty oily floor. It tries to throw this grubbiness off showing chocolate digestive and oak.
Palate: Initially,it's better than the nose and sweeter too. Birch sap wine. Becomesfishy half way through.
Finish: Tight with a peppery catch.
Comment: Like Dr Jekyll it's trying to escape from its alter ego,but Hyde wins out.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Farm yard. Straw with an earthy touch. Peaty note. The alcohol strengthmakes it prickly.
Palate: Mouth-coating. But so fiery and biting, numbing tastebuds. Smoke tries tocreep in.
Finish: Burning,dry.
Comment: I thought this whisky was too young to be bottled. And when I read that it was 16 Years Old, I could not believe it.
