Peter Mulryan

Roses, heavy musk, damp conifers and bog.
Very soft, round and complex. The flavours are hard to unpick, but there's warm honey, buttered crumpet and a hint of sweet pipe smoke.
Long and chewy.
This is a bottling of 28 casks of the 1991 vintage, so it is particularly rare an therefore collectible. When it's gone. It's gone.

Dave Broom

Pungent, intense, marine-like, a sweet minty note backed with a touch of lanolin. Good balance, with some creamy popcorn notes.
fragrant but almost friable character: cashew, brittle toffee. Peat smoke, light nuttiness.
Honey, then ash.
Good balance. Doesn't like water. Start here.
