Nose
Phenolic. Wet soot, smoke and creosote. The kiln the day after. Opens on lighter notes as the smoke screen vanishes. Marshmallow.
Palate
Smooth, round, velvety. Sweet maltiness. Smoked haddock. Develops on mint and liquorice. Lemon pulp with a touch of vanilla syrup.
Finish
Short but clean. Slightly sooty.
Comment
A fresh and balanced dram. Easy going, straightforward, cheerful. A perfect appetiser.

Nose
Bonfires. Burning leaves and damp foliage. A balanced mix of smoke and stewed fruits, just a hint of sweetness.
Palate
Soft and gentle. An intriguing melange of smoked fish, lemon drops and fresh bread. Quite oily in feel too.
Finish
Short with the smoke rising.
Comment
An easy drinking dram with reasonable complexity.
