Dave Broom

84
Nose
Mature and lightly fungal to start. Touches of orange pith and green grass, then hessian and real heathery smoke. Honey and peach.
Palate
A lightly smoky entrance and then the veil lifts to allow apricot, honey and a waxy feel.
Finish
Fades slightly into light smoke.
Comment
Though I miss Gold at this age statement this is a worthy replacement with a little more overt Walker characteristics: smoke and a sherried grip.

Martine Nouet

82
Nose
Intense, complex, elegant. Ripe and dried fruit. Almonds, raisins and apricot. Beeswax. Old leather. A touch of earthy peat.
Palate
Smooth and sweet. Satin-like. Perfect balance with the nose. Oak is melted into fruit.
Finish
Long, spicy with this delightful elegant oak character.
Comment
A beautiful dram. But it would have delivered even more if it had been bottled at 43%.
