Dave Broom

73
Nose
Ashes, spent pine fire, lilac wood. Slightly sappy. Toffee, dried guava, but the oak seems in charge.
Palate
Ripe and clean with some red fruits but a little dull with water as if the life has been sucked from it.
Finish
Dry.
Comment
Slightly over-active finishing cask has had a negative effect.

Dominic Roskrow

74
Nose
Light, sage and onion, doughy.
Palate
Intense and rich, with dark chocolate, black cherry and then deep plummy red fruit before a wave of savoury.
Finish
Quite short, complex and rich.
Comment
The best of the three but nowhere near the best from this distillery.
