Dave Broom

77
Nose
Plenty of stone fruit and vanilla. A Viognier like fleshy peachiness as well as a certain oiliness, but it's peaches from a parallel universe. Fruit, Jim, but not quite as we know it. Mature, with a flor-like nuttiness. Yeasty. It's all intriguingly odd.
Palate
Great age on show here, manages to balance the oak with a toffee-ed depth.
Finish
Nut shell.
Comment
Just lacks a little length. Not as pure as the 74, but I like its weirdness.

Arthur Motley

72
Nose
Both jammy and meaty, think of venison and redcurrant jelly. Water turned it a bit grubby, but this note settled to become like an earthy, forest floor. Some sweet, wine-like fruitness is there too.
Palate
Sweet and jammy, then drying.
Finish
Tannic, with a dry and husky, aftertaste like you get when you chew peated barley.
Comment
Choose the 1974 over this one, although if you are a fan of sherry cask led malt this may be your thing.
