Dave Broom

Nose
Some mighty mature stock here. Black/fried banana, woodiness, damp earth, leaf mould and pencil shavings. Water brings out Taiwanese Oolong.
Palate
Lots of rich, sweet oak and silky tropical fruit. Ripe and succulent before it dries into basil, dried mint - bouquet garni.
Finish
Long with some oaky notes.
Comment
Rich and balanced.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Almost like having breakfast, goat's milk and honey nut cornflakes. But also has a savoury edge: roast chicken and beef stock cubes.
Palate
Rich and oily, coats the mouth with mango and apples. The oak comes with some spices and dries the mouth a little.
Finish
Long with cream and some more fruits emerging at the end.
Comment
A very interesting whisky, great before dinner or for a session.
