Dave Broom

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

Arthur Motley

Nose
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.
Palate
Oily, ashy and peppery.
Finish
Drying and peppery.
Comment
A foody whisky that is lip-smacking and moreish. Almost Thai at times.
