Dave Broom

Wood embers/charcoal then a lift of fennel tops. Malt increases the smoke but reveals a stony heart: drying seaweed, bleached bones and tar.
A huge hit of smoke deepening into hot roads. Water spreads flavours, bringing out a fishy oiliness balancing the dry smoke.
Oatcake crunch, smoked red pepper.
The reserved nose is compensated by a lively, palate. Laphroaig is bang on form.

Arthur Motley

Lemon syllabub and antiseptic mouthwash. Ash, in the grate of a dead fire. Blackcurrant and aniseed. A little limey sourness with water, lemon pepper and maybe coriander. Barbecue sauce and coriander.
Oily, ashy and peppery.
Drying and peppery.
A foody whisky that is lip-smacking and moreish. Almost Thai at times.
