Peter Mulryan

Nose
Tobacco tins and lemon grass.
Palate
A huge sherry embrace, which gives way to mince pies and very juicy peat.
Finish
Tickly spicy marmalade.
Comment
Finishing Cooley's peated malt in a sherry wood for a year works a lot better than I imagined, and makes me wonder what an unpeated malt would taste like after a year in Jerez.

Dave Broom

Nose
Light fruits: citrus pith, grapefruit, tinned peach, marzipan. Light smoke, tea caddy. Sweet and lightly juicy with crispness. In time, menthol whittled sticks and apricot stone.
Palate
Sweetness and juicy oiliness. Hazelnut, bitter orange, orange peel.
Finish
Nutty.
Comment
The wood becomes a little obvious.
