Dave Broom

Nose
Weighty, phenolic. Foggy coal smoke, then more lifted and complex. Arbroath smokie, tar.
Palate
A lick of cream brings to mind an alcoholic Cullen skink. Shows maturity along with toasted almond, biscuity cereal. Not overly heavy, a good tongue-coating texture with persistent smoke.
Finish
Caramelised, smooth, then smoke returns.
Comment
A welcome addition to the range.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Ashy, smoky and lemony. Seaweed, apple, mint and tea tree oil. Intense, snarling and complex.
Palate
Not quite the assault I'd expected but delicious all the same. Lots of sweetness, tea tree, ash and a vegetal/autumn leaf flavour.
Finish
Smoked meats and a persistent seaweed.
Comment
For all its chest-beating, smoking-gun aroma, the palate is softer and more approachable. Compelling.
