Dave Broom

Nose
Obvious maturity. Quite figgy with good wood notes, light leather and a tweedy element but all of this is being balanced by succulent grain. Water brings out both dried coconut and a gamey element. Fascinating.
Palate
Immediate lift. Lots of herbal mintiness, fruit cake, Highland toffee to open while the thick mumble of stewed peach goes on underneath. Long developer.
Finish
Chewy, long and elegant.
Comment
An excellent (and sadly overlooked) blend.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Big engaging nose, plenty of layers of complexity here, ranging from light floral delicate notes to lush leather and wool. There are some pencil shavings and a hint of toffee.
Palate
That toffee note comes through with a touch of mint, almost like chocolate Kendal Mint Cake. Some fruits emerge with time.
Finish
Takes its time but very engaging.
Comment
Great stuff, makes me wonder why people claim not to drink blends.
