Dave Broom

80
Nose
Rich and ripe, with some dark (cooked) black fruit. Raisin, cocoa, praline, coconut. Substantial smooth succulence.
Palate
Sweet start then it firms up in the centre where the nuts return melting into the chocolate and raisin. Chewy and tongue coating. Showing some complexity.
Finish
Long, sweet.
Comment
Beautifully balanced.

Gavin Smith

82
Nose
Baked apples and spicy malt. A pleasingly mature character to it.
Palate
Big bodied, slightly oily, with nutmeg and red wine. Sophisticated and assured.
Finish
Notably long, drying with dark syrup and liquorice notes.
Comment
A confident whiskey that feels as though it has some age to it.
