Nose
Big assault of smoke, then seawater. Austere and airy with touches of wasabi, iodine and samphire that mix with green grass, old paper and seashells.
Palate
Immediate belt of smoke. Though lightly oily this evaporates on the tongue. A blast of smoke and seashore flavours around the mouth.
Finish
Clean and sharp with sooty smoke.
Comment
A head-cleaning experience. Not for the fainthearted.

86
Nose
Big oily peat with some sweet cereal notes to it, suggesting youth. Damp wool, pepper, soot and first aid kit.
Palate
Huge and rich. Packed with ash, burning coal fires, roasted pine nuts, and a hint of fruit sweetness.
Finish
Just keeps on going.
Comment
There is a chance you will be tasting this for days. Mammoth stuff.
