Nose
Intense. An immediate hit of Dettol and hospital corridors then a switch to oyster shell freshness. The smoke drifts away in time revealing a complex fruity centre.
Palate
Still medicinal and briny seashore aromas above an oily softness. Great impact.
Finish
Phenolic, coal tar lozenge. Fantastic length.
Comment
Fishy yet sweet. Kipper crumble in a hospital anyone?

Arthur Motley

82
Nose
The memory of grazed knees (pink dettol), pickled ginger and rescue remedy. Creosoted fenceposts and a little chlorine whiff. Some earthiness and lavender, and becoming floral.
Palate
Creosote, coal tar and aniseed. Smoked hickory.
Finish
Burnt twigs after a marshmallow toasting.
Comment
Another good example from Mr Consistency, Caol Ila.
