Gavin Smith

Nose
Big, with Lapsang Souchon and newly-tarred roads.
Palate
Warming and full, with lots of peat smoke and wet seaweed.
Finish
Dominant peat lingers all the way.
Comment
Complex, sophisticated heavyweight. The one they all have to beat.

Dave Broom

Nose
Pungent, complex. Smoked eel, coal tar, applewood, smoked cheese, bitumen. Frisky.
Palate
Intensely peaty. Rounded with big kick: marine character, fragrant smoke, touch of black pepper, but balanced by sufficient sweetness.
Finish
Smoke belch.
Comment
Excellent. Lagavulin isn't as peaty as it used to be? Pull the other one.
