Gavin Smith

72
Nose
Leather, saddle soap, 'fousty'.
Palate
Quite thick mouthfeel, dominant dry oak.
Finish
Mixed spices and raisins behind the oak, but struggling.
Comment
Hasn't held up for its age anything like as well as the previous thirty-something Bruichladdich. The cask has won this battle.

Dave Broom

70
Nose
Old, mature. Bung cloth, raisin, cereal, boot polish, lardy cake. Like an old warehouse. Becomes mustier with time. Damp wood.
Palate
Mixed dried fruits, dry clootie dumping mix. Old and fading fast.
Finish
Light tingle of ginger.
Comment
Gone, just spent too long in the cask.
