Dave Broom

Nose
Weightier. Creme brulee and a little butterscotch and just a hint of ripening red fruit and basil. In time,custard and an oily thickness. Fleshy, but there's also an underlying mustiness.
Palate
The thickest and most chewy on show. Buttered popcorn and white chocolate. Sweet again with some peaches in syrup and crisp oak.
Finish
Tingling and spiced.
Comment
Medium to full-bodied, but that slight mustiness diminishes its undoubted voluptuous charms.

Rob Allanson

Nose
A bold nose packed with caramel, vanilla cream and melted brown sugar. There is something savoury here too, roasted tomato, aged balsamic vinegar.
Palate
The boldness translates to the palate. barbecued sweetcorn and melted butter. Some soft fruit and then a fizzy sweetness.
Finish
Grippy and warming.
Comment
A big multilayered whisky. Definitely to try as a Manhattan.
