Nose
Fresh, fragrant, peat-smoke.
Palate
Peaty, tar-like, against an oily, cereal-grain sweetness.
Finish
Rooty, liquorice. Medicinal. Soothing. Extraordinarily long.
Comment
Robust as ever, but much more peatiness than I associate with this distillery. Oaky, too, for a relatively young whisky.

Dave Broom

87
Nose
Light but complex: an apple orchard after rain with pear, baked apple, cream and raisin and a balancing smoky sootiness.
Palate
There's lots going on: butter, cream, apple, fruit blossom, white pepper. Great balance and youthful vigour.
Finish
Long sooty, kiln.
Comment
What will happen now that Allied has ruined the new make by ripping out the coal fires?
