Dave Broom

74
Nose
Fat and malty with nuts, malted milk and ham stock (not something that you see in conjunction that often) Light and fairly tight. There's a meatiness all the way through here that with water shifts to cocoa.
Palate
Quite dry and tannic with some mint and lipstick like waxiness. Another that's best with only a little water.
Finish
Fat, but balanced.
Comment
Decent enough.

Martine Nouet

Nose
Meaty, a hint of smoke. Smoked ham. A butyric touch like the lactic smell in a dairy.
Palate
Sweet at first then getting bitter. Liquorice root, sugar candy. Over infused tea.
Finish
Dry, oaky with a hint of burnt wood.
Comment
A dour character. Wood is not integrated enough, and the whisky keeps an astringent edge.
