Peter Mulryan

Nose
Liniment and farmyard.
Palate
Honey on hot porridge, before a mushroom cloud of peat blows your head off.
Finish
A rollercoaster ride of pepper, huge amounts of billowing smoke, then vanilla, mint and choc fudge.
Comment
I just love this un-chill filtered version; it's fat, it's loud and it's fun. In this price bracket, there are very few Scottish single malts that can match it.

Dave Broom

Nose
Muted nose before vanilla, nuts, violet and a mix of estery notes and perfumed peat smoke. Kippers.
Palate
A very sweet start, lemon barley water, then the smoke builds in intensity, perfumed, touch of sheepskin. Good intensity.
Finish
Long, smoky. Slightly hot.
Comment
Not surprisingly the punchiest – and the peatiest of these two.
