Dave Broom

Mealy with some sweet grassiness. Apple purée, wet fern and a floral character (lilac). Some toasty oak below. Good creamy sweetness.
Intense and focused with real lemon tartness to start. Mellows into clotted cream, tangerine and a crisp oak giving balancing grip.
Surprisingly dry.
A huge leap in quality from the old 10 Years Old.

Martine Nouet

Refreshing, fragrant. Fruit cake, crystallised violets. Candyfloss. Liquorice toffee. Very confectionery-like.
Very much in tune with the nose. Smooth, round and fresh. With water, malt extract.
Carrying on the same aromatic path. Minty and aniseed lozenges. Oat in the back.
A very linear aromatic display. No surprise. Just pleasant.
