Nose
Gently sooty.
Palate
Lightly syrupy. Long development: smoky sappiness, briar-like woodiness, passionfruit, wild garlic, medicinal.
Finish
Long. Slowly stoking up the warmth.
Comment
A middleweight Islay malt.

Dave Broom

Nose
Rock pools, wet stone. Quite tight and young with a struck match note. Clean phenolics with good intensity. Sooty with some sweetness behind.
Palate
Medium-bodied. Very pure and fresh. Light oak. Interesting mix of sweetness with spiky peppermint, then smoke. Good balance.
Finish
Fresh.
Comment
A lively smoky little number. One for a walk.
