Dave Broom

72
Nose
Rounded and lightly agricultural: cowshed, damp green ferns, bourbon biscuit, cereal and smoke.
Palate
A real crunchy, nutty sweetness. Big heat from the alcohol but relaxed and confident showing good balance between mint, apple and maltiness, burning heather and ripe orchard fruits. Becomes nuttier as it goes.
Finish
Long and nutty.
Comment
Balanced and quite rich. Worth a look.

Martine Nouet

75
Nose
Fragrant. Meaty. Smoked bacon. Wet dog. Hint of cold ashes. Thyme. With water, fresh pears, barley sugar. More smoke.
Palate
Crisp. With a slight alcohol bite. Bitterness tones down the malty heart.
Finish
Dry, medium long.
Comment
The nose is full of smoke, the palate is very bitter. Lacks balance and roundness.
