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.
