Tasting Notes

Taster: Dave Broom

Nose: Pungent, complex. Smoked eel, coal tar, applewood, smoked cheese, bitumen. Frisky.

 

Palate: Intensely peaty. Rounded with big kick: marine character, fragrant smoke, touch of black pepper, but balanced by sufficient sweetness.

 

Finish: Smoke belch.

 

Comment: Excellent. Lagavulin isn't as peaty as it used to be? Pull the other one.
