80
Nose
Mature. Light leather and maltiness. In time, violet then a shift to vanilla, brazil nut, polished oak. Light smoke.
Palate
An oily start, creosote but with a balancing crisp nuttiness. A slow, peaty fog then tobacco and the cinders of a woodland bonfire. Water brings out damp mash, lanolin, heather and a briny note.
Finish
Long, perfumed, salty.
Comment
Has richness and some finesse.

Arthur Motley

82
Nose
A handful of lightly peated barley, tea tree and a musky, perfumed element. Band Aids. A creaminess, like a creamy coffee. Crème de dulce.
Palate
Forest fruits and charcoal, with bonfire smoke.
Finish
A little more smoke fading to burnt sage.
Comment
A good complex mix of floral flavours, fruit and smoke.
