Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Dave Broom

Nose:  Fish market, light smoke and flowers.  Weetabix and bourbon biscuits.  Very intriguing.

Palate:  The chocolate hit is immediate.  Explosive smoke ignites in the middle.  Deep and quite rugged.  Well put together.

Finish:  Long, gently smoky.

Comments:  Water smooths it down, but the rugged edge is what makes this a winner.

Tasting Notes by Tim F

Nose:  Slightly volatile. Honey, iodine, medicinal peaty notes.  Faint hints of fresh mint, sea spray and cough mixture.

Palate:  Warming peat, soot, medicine cabinet surge.  Medium-bodied, with the honey, some sappy wood, apricot, white pepper, woodsmoke, and smoked fish developing.

Finish:  Warm, long, honeyed, spiced and slightly drying as the oak makes a comeback.

Comment:  A nicely balanced, slightly fiery teenager.
