Dave Broom

Nose
Pale in colour but, slightly counter intuitively, densely rich in character suggesting this is distillate, not oak, driven. Grows in presence with water, even revealing some camphor.
Palate
Big, burnt and slightly meaty midpalate with, again, more impact than the hue suggests. Oily and dense.
Finish
Clean and surprisingly short.
Comment
A good example of mature Mortlach character without the close attentions of oak.

Nose
Big, intense. Orange blossom honey. Stewed apple and a meaty note. Vanilla swirls up with biscuit notes. Rather complex. Orange juice (with the pulp).
Palate
Syrupy, thick, oily. Sweet at first then the tongue is kicked by a fizzy spicy explosion. Cooked fruit in honey.
Finish
Fruity and spicy.
Comment
Fruit in disguise! A rich and powerful dram. Certainly not a whispering whisky. Buoyant and uplifting.
