Gavin Smith

Nose
Peat smoke, wet moss, scorched timber.
Palate
Intense peat, seaweed, and dry, sooty oak. Cooked fruits struggling to come through.
Finish
Long and smoky.
Comment
Powerful, pungent malt with everything an Islay enthusiast would wish for.

Dave Broom

Nose
Pungent, intense, almost balsamic. Soot/wood embers, canvas, a hint of Arbroath smokie and grassy like a peat bank. Hairy chested.
Palate
Rounded with good weight and depth. Seaweedy and lightly medicinal, hint of cattlecake. The firm centre is tempered by cooked orchard fruit.
Finish
Sweet and slightly nutty. Smoke. Oatcake.
Comment
A punchy, deep malt. Good balance.
