Gavin Smith

Nose
Sea salt, floor polish, mild antiseptic, and subtle oak.
Palate
Waxy, full, with pepper and light smoke.
Finish
Long and dry, sea-spray.
Comment
Very well balanced, this expression has enjoyed a great relationship with its cask.

Dave Broom

Nose
Pungent. Acetone, linseed oil/putty, olive oil, canvas, squid ink even apple. Briny (scallop shell, fishmonger) Quite oaky.
Palate
Mouth-coating and smooth. Beeswax, lanolin, pepper, dry smoke. Needs time.
Finish
Rich and tight.
Comment
Has all of Port Ellen's great length, oiliness (and reserve).
