Nose: Big smoke! Bog myrtle,seaweed,some linseed,smoked eel. Salty. In time some dubbin (oiliness). With water shows youth and a burning paper note.
Palate: Seems young.Has crunchy malt counterbalanced by some oiliness in the middle. Briny with hot peppers and a little pecan sweetness. The smoke is dominant on the back palate.
Finish: Young. Spent ashes and tarred rope. Hint of balsam.
Comment: Has considerable character. Fresh, young but for peat freaks only.
Nose: Medicinal and mineral. Créosote. Disinfectant. Wet pebble. Bog myrtle, citrus fruit,smoke. A touch of camphor. Then barley sugar,vanilla biscuit. Pungent but the aromatic display is under control.
Palate: Sweet maltiness followed by an explosion of peat,smoke from the kiln and soot. Salty feel.
Finish: Lingering with mineral notes.
Comment: As we say in French,an iron hand in a velvet glove. Splendid.
