Gavin Smith

Nose
Assertive, with soot, dry sherry, raisins and claret.
Palate
Dry, lots of smoke-both wood and peat, aniseed and fishermen's ropes.
Finish
Long and loud.
Comment
A 'no bones about it' Islay whisky, and a fine example of Ardbeg.

Dave Broom

Nose
Mature, liquorous and sweet. There's prunes, coffee grounds, cream sherry and dried mushroom; funkier notes of moss, creosote, bung cloth, resin and chimney smoke. A big bugger.
Palate
Immediate, all-enveloping smoke. Rich, mature with good grip: dried fig, turf, nuts. Mellow.
Finish
Big, intense, smoky. Touch of rubber.
Comment
Not exactly discreet...but it's Ardbeg!
