Nose
Big, soft, smokiness
Palate
Assertive. Attention-grabbing. Lively acidity. The faintest dash of malt vinegar. Malty. Bittersweet.
Finish
Long, warming.
Comment
Bring on the kippers.

Ian Wisniewski

Nose
Gentle waft of creosote and embers, above which a jasmine flower blossoms, accompanied by pear drops, linseed notes and a hint of vanilla.
Palate
Luscious sweetness with creamy crème caramel, background waft of sweet, earthy peat and chargrilled notes, before jasmine tea.
Finish
Creamy crème caramel and digestive biscuit sweetness with a waft of dry peatiness.
Comment
Sweet-dry-savoury-fruit balance, intense but elegant. A dram with drama.
