Member Ratings and Notes

N: Hugely peaty, it stinks from cross the room.   Not getting any port on the nose, which to me is a good thing.
P: Thankfully the peat is more subdued on the palate, well balanced for being so young. 
F: More of the same.
Got some potential here, looking forward to tasting the progress.

Nose is an attack of smokey peat.  Palate is massively peaty/smokey, with the smoke tending towards the campfire variety.  Tasty and butt-kicking, though quite one-dimensional.  There's enough sweetness to balance this out (relatively) for an enjoyable but challenging experience.

Bathwater and spearment.  Strong peat nose, weakly peaty taste.  The port is hard to find.
