Nose
Wood smoke, pears, mild antiseptic, old-fashioned wound-dressings.
Palate
Rich leather and vanilla, dry oak and bonfire smoke.
Finish
Lingers well, increasingly dry. Touch of Germolene?
Comment
Conclusion: Another perfectly fine Coal Ila, but nothing to blow the mind.

Dave Broom

87
Nose
Complex and rich: burnt stick, wood ash, smoked ham and haddock, roasted pepper, chamois, Savlon, toasted oats. Creaminess.
Palate
Smoky and powerful with a dry start. Big and broad with layers of flavour: smoke, fish, coconut, wet grass, harbour fronts. Great balance.
Finish
Lightly medicinal.
Comment
An extra dimension over the OB.
