Dave Broom

79
Nose
Another delicate number. Scone mix, ash wood and subtle touches of perfume like lime and linden blossom.
Palate
Here you can more easily discern marzipan, gooseberries, lychee, pear and apple juice and a zesty drive.
Finish
Light juniper/pine.
Comment
Delicate but charming with good intensity. It's often unfair to put this very carefully thought out character in a line-up with bolder flavours, but with patience you begin to understand. This isn't Scotch, it's Mackmyra.

Martine Nouet

76
Nose
Perfumy. Fruity. Fresh juicy grapes, honeyed pears.
Palate
Smooth at first then the alcohol gives the tongue a kick. Oaky grip at midpalate. A nutty hint and some sweet vanilla notes.
Finish
Astringent but in a pleasant way.
Comment
The nose delivers more aromas than the palate. The alcohol is not totally mastered here. A few more years in the cask maybe ?
