Dave Broom

76
Nose
Shoe polish (suede cleaner), dark chocolate, tinned black cherry pie filling, floor polish. More complex with water becoming orange accented.
Palate
Soft, with red fruits. Tart and acidic moving into kumquat before a barrage of red and black fruits.
Finish
Light red cherry notes.
Comment
Just a little lacking in full integration. You can sense the whisky sitting underneath the finish.

Dominic Roskrow

72
Nose
Floral bath foam. Green vegetables. Sweet chestnut.
Palate
Savoury and sappy, and with an interesting balance between berry fruits and ginger barley.
Finish
Medium, earthy and fruity.
Comment
This is like batting against a team with four fast bowlers. It's relentless. A tangy taste sensation, sure, but the jury's out as to whether the malt's been enhanced by the finish.
