Dave Broom

Nose
Assertive and smoky. Crab shells next to dried seaweed. In time there's a Germoline note and some tar. Sweet as well,while a vanilla undertow adds interest. Water gives a marine lift.
Palate
Burnt. Roast/charred red peppers. Clean sweet oak.Good length and the tarry smoke gathers in intensity.
Finish
Smoke.
Comment
A peaty classic. Uncompromising yes, but great balance.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Big smoky,a royal example of peat in your face.Reminds me of opening the kilns at Laphroaig. Some sweetness here to complement as well. Wet. tarmac and that wonderful trademark medicinal note
Palate
Seaweed,charred wood,a hint of salt.
Finish
Very rounded. Dry.
Comment
Everything is there you want from a great example of an Islay peated malt.
