Dave Broom

Nose
Glows in the glass. Dark fruits and creme brulee. Lots of polished oak, some pine and coconut,menthol and liqueur chocolates.
Palate
Heavily structured. Very tight and not allowing the spirit to speak. Any flavour has been replaced by grip.
Finish
Tannic.
Comment
Great nose but disappointing palate. It's not as simple as ‘what's the right age',but at what point has the cask done its job. This has gone too far.

Martine Nouet

Nose
Intense,rich and elegant. Fruity. Damson plum. A touch of redcurrant. Subtle spiciness. Getting creamier when aerated. Not the usual aromas of a bourbon.
Palate
Sweet. Does not totally release the nose promises though.
Finish
Intense,with a clean oakytonality.
Comment
The strange tawny colour suggests a wine finish. A bourbon dressed in unusual clothes.
