Gavin Smith

Nose
Fewer floral notes, more vanilla and toffee.
Palate
The bourbon cask is beginning to assert its influence here. Vanilla and toffee on top of still lively malt and spice.
Finish
Lengthy and complex, malt and vanilla nicely in harmony.
Comment
Fine if you're a bourbon fan, but this is perhaps a little too far for me.

Dave Broom

Nose
Rich, heavy, shows maturity. Floral notes (violet/pot pourri) and spices (ginger, allspice, nutmeg, candied peels). Oily; floor polish, sandalwood.
Palate
Lively. Fruit, sweet spices and oak pool in the centre. Big with a silky/oily mouthfeel.
Finish
Cocoa butter. Long.
Comment
A cracker, typical of old (and older style) Speyside.
