Nose
Dusty and spicy – cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric, sooty peat and powdered cedar wood tannins. Herbal with a light medicinal demeanour and a light salty astringency. Mature oak adds structure.
Palate
A little more robust than the nose. The oak is more forward but not dominating. Again dusty, spicy-peat, treacle and a touch of dried fruit. Herbal on the middle with an alcohol accented astringency.
Finish
Mouth-watering with coal / peat dust along with herbal / medicinal peat coated fruit. Yep, it's dusty!
Comment
Like a dusty, mature Bowmore.

Nose
Smoked meat, cured Serrano ham and charred wood shavings, with a little linseed oil note.
Palate
The smoke is there in abundance, but so is the oily linseed and bacon fat, eventually giving way to some cracked black peppercorns.
Finish
The pepper tingles, whilst the smoke wafts majestically. Very nice indeed.
Comment
The posh bacon sandwich of the whisky world. If supermarkets served this, they would add on a few quid, that's for sure.
