Dave Broom

Nose
Rich and heavy. Dark plum/prune. Heathery smoke, more obvious with water, raisin and plum pudding. Some sweetness (fruit pastille?) as well as a maritime edge. Some chocolate hob nobs and Demerara sugar.
Palate
Soft start. Immediate hold of the palate. Silky and complex. Mulberry jam, chestnut honey, raisin and date. Full but with a green mossy lift on top.
Finish
Velvety and long.
Comment
The freshness of Red has been replaced by chewy mellow notes. Big flavour. Exemplary blending.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Big and rich. Maple syrup with apple pie spices and a kick of mustard seed. Salt encrusted caramel.
Palate
Big layers of drying smoke and spices. There is also some sweet malt loaf and creamy vanilla.
Finish
Rounded and mellow.
Comment
The classic blended Scotch.
