Dave Broom

Nose
Creamy and sweet with a note of heavily charred wood before envelope glue, bamboo shoots and a big honeyed creamy note backed by stewed apple.
Palate
Zesty and vibrant with plenty of nuttiness. Medium dry. Tight with fresh spices moving forward.
Finish
Crisp and clean.
Comment
Triple distillation heightens the aromatics though can't really see the oloroso influence.

Martine Nouet

78
Nose
Grassy, musty. Wet leaves, moss, damp fern. Develops on a tender vanilla note. Lemonade. Wafer biscuit. The earthy aromas slowly fade away. Pleasantly perfumy. With water, medlars.
Palate
Smooth, satin-like. Vanilla syrup. A hint of poached peach. Dries at mid-palate. Ground ginger. Touch of chilli.
Finish
Dry, warm. Spicy.
Comment
A clean spirit, drier and spicier than expected from the nose. A dash of water gives it a better balance.
