Dave Broom

Scented. Very waxy: scented candle, incense and then pure (jellied) fruits and peach/apricot and some hot apple crumble. Complex and charming.
Obviously old, there's cinnamon and a dusty rose, some strawberry and light, balancing tannins. There's a clean peppermint character which adds freshness.
Dries a little.
Long and serious.

Rob Allanson

Stewed fruit compote dusted with cinnamon. Clotted cream and honey. There is also a hint of patchouli.
Hits you in waves of spice, malt and then sherry soaked fruit pudding. There is a touch of mint dark chocolate, almost spearmint.
Long with that chocolate note.
Great blending, and should set the benchmark for premium older blends.
