Nose
Apricot jam filling in a sponge sandwich. Madeira cake. Vanilla pod. Cinnamon. Spicy dryness.
Palate
Intense spiciness and fruit. Sherry trifle. Peaches marinated in whisky.
Finish
Sweetness rounded by drier flavours. Bitter chocolate. Peppermint creams. Restrained alcohol.
Comment
Very sherryish, but just enough of the Glenlivet's fruity-flowery character sings through. Beautifully judged.

Dave Broom

85
Nose
Mature and weighty. Dried fruits, crushed hazelnut, old apples, treacle toffee, honey cakes (baklava), walnut, tobacco pouch, polished oak.
Palate
Good weight. Treacle, dried fruits, walnut. Hints of resin balanced by appley fruit. Broadens as it goes.
Finish
This is is where it all happens. Highly complex.
Comment
Fascinating comparison with the Murray McDavid example. A different personality but equally good.
