Dave Broom

82
Nose
Big and generous. Shifting into coffee cake with butter icing. Water makes it reminiscent of a bodega then comes mint, citrus zest and in time tanned leather. Grist-like sweetness.
Palate
Better grip, some substance and a dried fruit edge along with red liquorice.
Finish
Firm, nutty and clean.
Comment
Good flow, balance and grip. A powerhouse.

Gavin Smith

82
Nose
Initially rather reticent, with acetone and developing grain giving way to a treacly, slightly smoky note.
Palate
Medium-bodied, with a hint of honey, then darker treacle and stewed fruits dominate.
Finish
Liquorice and oak – quite lengthy.
Comment
A whiskey with complexity, character and some age to it.
