Nose
Party balloons. Lemon jelly and custard.
Palate
Dolly mixtures. Children's party, but now the adults have arrived. The sweetness now is brown sugar, in Earl Grey tea.
Finish
Port. Thinly sliced Stilton. Saltines.
Comment
A hint of sulphur in the nose had me dismissing this whisky. It seemed young, immature, callow – but we finishing up flirting.

Dave Broom

82
Nose
Mature and sweet with a little touch of oak. Coconut, beeswax, honey, apple skin.
Palate
Slow moving and expansive. Mature notes again, powdered nut, custard cream. Becomes more oaky, but balanced by silky fruits. and a growing flavour of almond. In time a hint of heathery smoke.
Finish
Long. Hardens slightly.
Comment
Complex. This has a layered effect which elevates it above most of the rest.
