Dave Broom

Intense, fresh. Marine notes, salty seaweed, fresh fish. The smoke begins to charge out: smokehouse chimney. Sweet all the way.
Sweet start then it snags on the palate and starts to flow. The scented smoke rises to the top of the mouth the sweetness dips onto the tongue. Succulent, intense and marine.
Long and sweetly smoky.
You can see into this like a rockpool. Clean and pristine. Complexity building.

Arthur Motley

Obviously phenolic but also with sugared almonds, green tea and green peppercorns. Gooseberries, soot and wood smoke. Chinese restaurant seaweed. At times a pink dettol note.
More of that green tea, smoky almonds and some jalapeno spice.
Coal tar. Very dry.
Typical of this great distillery: satisfying and sophisticated.
