Dave Broom

60
Nose
Edgy and slightly metallic. Seems young; green walnut, unripe fruits. Slightly sweeter with water, but still hard overall.
Palate
Some daffodil-like floral aromas. Light pear, but very thin with water.
Finish
Sudden. Dry and hollow.
Comment
This metallic edge suggests the use of young grain that hasn't matured out fully.

Gavin Smith

75
Nose
A most unusual, high, furniture polish and spirity nose. Acetone and meths, yet not unattractive.
Palate
Oily, with dark berries and malt.
Finish
Quite short and nutty. Lingering vanilla behind oak.
Comment
A curious beast, indeed.
