Dave Broom

Highly concentrated nose:black truffle,soy sauce and tamarind, roasted tea. Orange peel. Exotic and leathery with massive levels of whisky rancio mixed with a rooty vetiver note.
Polished,smoky. Prunes and earth. It could be an ancient Armagnac. Obvious age and big tannic grip but there's a hint of berry fruits.
Lengthy and gripping.
Like drinking an ancient forest and not to everyone's taste (or pocket) but it has character and power.

Martine Nouet

Earthy. Moss. Oak. Church bench. Exotic wood. Beeswax. Burnt wood. Molasses. Complex and deep. Lots of sherry wood.
Sweet and bitter. Complex. Exotic fruit. Guava and passion fruit. But oak tends to play the boss.
A sweet aftertaste. Sultanas.
An old whisky which has stayed too long in wood. It was certainly beaming a good 10 years ago.
