Dave Broom

77
Nose
Clean and limey, scallop shells, brine, fresh salted fish. Slightly plain: hot pebbles on a beach.
Palate
Smoky with light juniper and thyme notes. Sufficient sweetness to offset the sooty smoke.
Finish
Becomes citric, this time lemon, and slightly floral.
Comment
A perfectly decent dram, but just lacks the required interaction between wood and spirit.

Arthur Motley

75
Nose
Tea tree, a handful of peated malted barley. Apple skins and compost. Damp woodland floor and burning wet leaves. Cigarette ash. Turned a bit grubby with water.
Palate
Sweet, then composty, almost like silage.
Finish
Wet ashtrays.
Comment
Fell apart with water, but fun to tussle with neat.
