Dave Broom

Nose
Delicate and floral. Marshmallow, damp (freshly washed) linen, then kiwi fruit, sweet persimmon, subtle citrus and talcum powder.
Palate
Dare I say, whispering? Powdery with whipped cream, strawberry and white fruit. Doesn't particularly like water.
Finish
Fresh, lime.
Comment
A very subtle, and discreet Balblair but another addition to what has become a compelling range.

Martine Nouet

78
Nose
Delicate. Floral and grassy. Rosebud. With a faint aerial smoky touch. Narcissus, lemon balm.
Palate
Sweet and syrupy. Pears in vanilla syrup. A grassy flavour as well.
Finish
Short but pleasant. Marzipan. Slightly dusty.
Comment
Quite a shy whisky but elegant and well knitted. Avoid water though.
