Dave Broom

70
Nose
Mature. Jammy, stewed fruit but slightly flat. Some currant and shoe polish. In time a mash tun note.
Palate
Sweet and honeyed with good depth. Tongue-coating. Oak showing. Hates water.
Finish
Short.
Comment
The wood has taken charge. Doesn't appear to have the character to carry extended aging.

Arthur Motley

77
Nose
Red apples and dried fruits (apple, coconut and papaya). With water a mustiness comes out, although with a fine oatiness like muesli-dust. Floral too.
Palate
A complex mix of fruit, chocolate and lots of wood.
Finish
Drying tannins grip to the tongue.
Comment
Tannic but pleasant enough old malt.
