Dave Broom

Nose
Lots of pine sap, even a whiff of turpentine (which is not a negative comment) then comes nutmeg and red cherry. Quite bourbon like. Banana peel and cacao.
Palate
Spicy. A similar first-fill hit to Bain's but this has more eucalyptus notes and very juicy fruits. Palate coating.
Finish
Soft. Pine like.
Comment
The most wood influenced. Medium bodied. Very focused spirit.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Heady oak notes at first, bow resin. The most bourbonesque of the pack. Deep dark sugar and spices.
Palate
A spice punch that mellows to a nutmeg sweetness, similar to egg custard. A whiff of menthol and ends with soft fruits, peaches.
Finish
Gentle and long.
Comment
Again wonderfully balanced and a great example of Invergordon.
