Dave Broom

72
Nose
Ripe apples, treacle, leaf mulch, shifting slightly into linseed along with a flick of a leather. Water brings out a whiff of turps and dusty spices.
Palate
Real concentration, then napthalene. The leather comes back...as do tannins.
Finish
Dries significantly and reveals smoke.
Comment
This is a big mean mother whose youthful charms have been lashed into submission by oak.

Arthur Motley

80
Nose
Refresher sweeties, lavender and demerara rum. Leafy, floral and something slightly silagey.
Palate
Floral, with a bourbon-like character with lots of vanilla oak and some piney sap.
Finish
Demerara, rum-like sweetness.
Comment
Very pleasant aged whisky.
