Dave Broom

Some oak. Custard, clover honey, light peach/mango with a delicate touch of smoke (more applewood than peat smoke). With water it is perfumed with tangerine and shore aromas.
All about texture. Palate-coating, tongue-clinging. White chocolate and mango. Rounded and chewy with lots of pulpy fruits. Has lower levels of smoke. Water moves it into barley sugar while a grassy note gives lift.
Ripe apricot and waxiness.
Unctuous and smooth.

Rob Allanson

A honey liqueur quality, plenty of honeycomb. Peaches and cream, gentle oak and white chocolate.
That liqueur quality comes over as mouth coating, rich waxiness. Juicy peach and mango too. A touch of smoke lurks as well.
Soft and honeyed.
Seems to stand out on its own in the range. But full and bold all the same.

Blended whisky is most often considered a poor relation to single malts.
