Gavin Smith

Nose
Quite heavy sweet notes – dates and figs – initially, before malt and faint smoke is detected.
Palate
Thick mouthfeel, red grapes, more complex soft fruits and smoke develop with water.
Finish
Gentle, some peat, balanced by sweeter malt notes, but plums linger too insistently.
Comment
Complex and curious!

Dave Broom

Nose
Firm, concentrated start. Floor wax, cigar smoke. Then a strange artificial perfume: attar of roses, orange blossom water, lavender.
Palate
The essency, gin like, notes continue. Then smoke and a nice hit of red fruits.
Finish
Soft, light smoke.
Comment
Just plain weird. Don't know whether to dab it behind my ears or drink it.
