Dave Broom

Nose
Big and fairly sweet with light smokiness. Toasty cereal,chocolate brownie and some coconut in time. Water makes it more rounded with mixed dried fruits.
Palate
Thick feel. Brazil nut and muscovado sugar,then oak and light smoke. With water its broad and chewy with black fruits.
Finish
Marmalade.
Comment
A big-boned dram for those markets who want things sweet.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Another bold sweet nose with a gentle whiff of smoke.A solid chocolate orange and slight flinty,almost bloodlike edge to it.
Palate
Has a dense quality to it. Vanilla and sawdust follow accompanied by this gentle smoke waft.
Finish
Cooked oranges with a malt hint.
Comment
A blended malt with a very sweet heart,for those who like it that way.
