Dave Broom

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

Rob Allanson

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