Dave Broom

Nose
Mature notes: dunnage warehouse, discreet nuttiness. Water brings out its real substance. Oily and strangely, funkily, sweet.
Palate
Extremely sweet: elderflower and icing sugar, milk chocolate. With water, orange Spangles, pink marshmallow. Light grip.
Finish
Medium, oaky.
Comment
It's in the twilight of its autumn, but has subtle complexity and less of the overt sweetness that old grains usually exhibit.

Nose
Grassy, herbal. Orange like in Cointreau. Candied angelica. Oatcakes. A touch of caramelised demerara sugar.
Palate
Very spirity and tangy. A note of corked spirit and must.
Finish
Spicy, liquoriced.
Comment
The alcohol bite is assertive, on the nose as on the palate. And water does not make it much more palatable.
