Dave Broom

Nose
Rather blunt and thick. Chewy with alight touch of fig jam,black banana,malt. Slight sour note in the background.
Palate
Seems fattened up. Toffee,red apple then cream sultana and a burnt note shifting towards treacle. Seems unbalanced.
Finish
Slightly bitter. Caramel.
Comment
The overall effect is a little forced as if it's trying to appear older than it actually is. A wee boy in his Dad's suit.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Malty and spiced. Quite powerful but with a delicate hint of almost mint toffee in the background. A slight citrus note too .
Palate
Caramel toffees with a spicy,pepper like dryness.Almost a nutmeg edge with that mint note as well.
Finish
Smooth and clean.
Comment
Would be something perfect as a pre dinner drink.
