KILCHOMAN LOCH GORM: Nose, there's the peat, straight away, earthy and rich. This is followed by red berries and sweet citrus with a medicinal hint developing along the way.

This is swiftly followed by smoky peat once again, which stays with you through the Sherry soaked berries until the finish.  Finish, sweet and smoky right to the end, cherries lasting.  Overall, great balance of Oloroso Sherry sweetness.

GLENDRONACH OCTARINE: Nose, starts on marzipan / walnuts with some citrus notes and apricot compote, but quickly loses a lot of its freshness and moves to roasted almonds and old roses. Interesting smokiness which seems to mute the fruits. Some milk chocolate. A little mineral as well (limestone). Mouth, starts a little shy, with mixed fruits (apple, orange) and evolving to big notes of butter toffee and caramel. Some vanilla. Overall quite coating, with a creamy chocolate body.

Finish, salinity lasts on the finish along with peppery warmth.
