Chris Goodrum

93
Nose
Tight and shy to begin, fragrant oak, sour fruit, boiled sweets. Camphor, tobacco leaf, rubber and tar. A green oak-like character and a touch of cardamom. Water makes it smokier and spicier.
Palate
Soft, the oils counter the alcohol. Oak, herbal heather, Turkish delight, sweet corn, cinnamon, nutmeg, tobacco, tar, wood smoke. Even a drop of water doesn't tame its visceral character.
Finish
Hot, herbal and intense. So woody it's like sucking on a piece of green oak soaked in alcohol!
Comment
It's a love or hate whisky and I love it.

Sara Smith

97
Nose
Strong smoke and new car furnishings, which develop to smooth, but rich notes of Pedro Ximenez sherry. Raisin, dry woodiness, angelica root and wormwood.
Palate
The brilliant, bold notes from the nose continue. There's also a sweet, earthy smokiness that is complemented by complex wood notes.
Finish
A softer version of the organic smoke from before, dry sherry, leather, bonfire smoke; light, sweet maltiness.
Comment
A hearty whisky with a delightful balance of sweet, savoury and smoked notes; a perfect candidate to revisit and explore time and again.
