Dave Broom

Nose
Substantial and rich. Some liquorice, black fruits,a slightly burnt note,raisin, malt loaf,fruit cake mix. In time there's a lick of leather and a hint of tomato.
Palate
Immediately silky with a quite thick mid palate. Slow flavour release, mixing dried fruits,a touch of walnut and towards the finish. Dark fruits and the merest hint of clove.
Finish
Dundee marmalade,then the roasted note. Slightly tight suggestive of its youth.
Comment
Glossy and polished. Big flavour rules here.

Rob Allanson

Nose
A great depth of aromas here. Dark fruits like plums,raisins and blackcurrants. Sherry at the fore with butterscotch and almost green tomato.
Palate
Bags of sherry but without all the richness. Fairly expressive with good malt notes and a classy honeyness as well.
Finish
Very satisfying with a hint of ginger and oak.
Comment
A great after dinner drink with a bold big character.
