Dave Broom

85
Nose
Fragrant smoke, light tar, wet grass, burning fish boxes. In time there's Old English marmalade and fish oils and a hint of seaweed.
Palate
Immediate thrust of smoke with lots of oil, leather, plum and a vanilla smoothness. Long layered and balanced.
Finish
Superb length.
Comment
Here we go again...Caol Ila hits the nail on the head yet again.

Arthur Motley

82
Nose
Youthful and intense with plenty of peat, wet grass and fish oil.
Palate
Dark chocolate and sweet vanilla. Earthy and grassy, with silky, creamy mint. Like peat-flavoured bubblegum.
Finish
Earthy.
Comment
Bristling with all those flavour spikes that make the Peat Freaks grin. Like a mint choc chip and peat ice cream.
