Nose
Dark, pungent and malty with manure, peat, tar, fish oils and wood spices. Superb depth and complexity with cigar leaf and gritty but soft tannins.
Palate
Malty with dark honey, coffee, walnut shell, subtle peat and gritty tannins. Mouth-filling with violets, dark chocolate and gentle mature, Armagnac-esque dried fruit.
Finish
Malty and fishy with lingering prunes, walnut, sherry wood spice and salt.
Comment
Classic, oozing character and class. If you love this style of whisky, then it's a must buy!

Nose
Dark chocolate with sea salt give way to Parma ham and gala melon, like a vintage dinner party canapé selection. Really inviting, with the gala melon the most inviting part.
Palate
Melon notes mixed with a hint of smoke and some bacon. These shouldn't work, but really do, proving that Campbeltown really is halfway between Lowlands and Islay.
Finish
The smoke bursts into life here, and this could end up being an island whisky.
Comment
Everything that is great about Campbeltown. Curious and flavour-bending!
