Nose
Perfumy. Herbal. Vegetal.
Palate
Starts softly and sweetly, then explodes with flavours. Camomile, lemon grass, anise, fennel. Very spicy.
Finish
Very dry. Intense.
Comment
This is how Lowlanders used to be: drier, more herbal, more complex. Buy now, while stocks last.

Dave Broom

82
Nose
Touches of tobacco, waxed floors, hessian, then brazil nut, cooked fruit and tinned peach. Mature.
Palate
Sweet, rounded, mixing a silky feel with light fruits, flowers and some fresh nuttiness. It hits a perfect balance between delicacy and substance.
Finish
A hint of smoke.
Comment
You don't have to have masses of peat or sherry to make a malt interesting. The best of these Lowlanders show that. Try them!
