Gavin Smith

Nose
Fresh and nutty, raw green vegetables and phenols.
Palate
Toffee, cooking oil and insistent smoke.
Finish
Almost herbal, with increasing peat reek.
Comment
Bold, well-balanced example, most drinkable.

Dave Broom

Nose
Direct and phenolic. Frying bacon fat, cabbage, silage, fish boxes, damp coal bunker. Some lifted citric notes, camomile. Smoke.
Palate
Young with real power and attack. The smoke appears from half way but is balanced by a sweet centre. Oily, rich, even salty (oops!).
Finish
Smoky bacon, camomile, clove.
Comment
A young cracker. Don't pass this up.
