Dave Broom

Nose
Fatter with riper /semi-dried fruits. Baked apple. Some dry oak. Richer and more substantial. Victoria sponge, sultana. No sulphur.
Palate
Less overtly sweet to start,more of a slow spread of flavours and also wider on the tongue. Better delivery. Some barley sugar,dried apricot,heavier florals. Fleshy and slightly more tropical in character.
Finish
Light sweet spice and citrus oils.
Comment
More interesting. Here the finish has added a new element while not killing the distillery character.

Rob Allanson

Nose
The extra maturation has amplified things here. More malty with ripe fruits and a raisony note.
Palate
There is more of a barely sugar sweet character now. It fills the mouth. Reminiscent of a meadow in late summer,scent laden.
Finish
Still light and sweet.
Comment
Improvement is not the right word but there is a beneficial element added here. Delightful.
