An irresistible mix of dark grungey smoke and light sweet fruit. If you could barbecue a tin of Del Monte exotic fruits this is what it would taste like. Stunning Dominic Roskrow
Cedar, forest floor. French toast accompanied by very tannic black tea. Reminds me of amber resin Liza Weisstuch
The mouth bathes in a rich, chocolaty sweetness, then puckers up with the very drying tannic oak. A drop of water turns it into something delightful ~ juicy and nicely tingling with a long finish Robin Laing
Big, fruity nose, dried fruits, dried herbs; waxy mouthfeel, sweet taste, crystalline sugar; mouth-cooling. A cracker! Charles MacLean
Creamy, very peppery with background smokiness. Warming with harmonious balance of sweet fruit, malt, pepper and cream. Sublime whisky Davin de Kergommeaux
Like an old flowery perfume, some honey sweetness; nice cedarwood notes, good aftershock of some decent smoke. Very nice dram Bernhard Schafer
Full body high octane powerhouse. Oily mouth coating flavour of salt and nuts, iodine leading into minty freshness LeNell
Heather and sea air on the nose. Smoky, peaty top notes. Underlying elements of mint, leather, vanilla William Dowd
Sun heated pebbles. A marine and spicy breeze. Hints of soot, Oysters with a dash of Tabasco. Powerful, uncompromising, wild. Superb Martine Nouet
