Nose
Big fragrant (dry) smoke,wet oilskins, linseed oil,hot charcoal. Needs water which shows it to be clean and very open with light oiliness,some brine.
Palate
Dry with good extract. Loosens well with a drop of water showing grapefruit,ripe pear,a hint of malt then some yew.
Finish
Big phenols massed here leaving you knee-deep in seaweed.
Comment
Long,stylish and balanced. Highly recommended.

Nose
Peaty. The full package: creosote,dry smoke,soot,tar,a touch of iodine. And, slowly swirling through the smoke,a summer fruit note.
Palate
Very crisp and fizzy. A sooty/dusty feel on the tongue. Smoke is quite invasive. And the dry texture enhances the alcohol bite.
Finish
Smoother yet dry.
Comment
A rough lad. Hides behind the smoke. The fruit does not come through,and the alcohol is not mastered enough.
