Dave Broom

Nose
Initial citrus notes (lime) soon give way to bready aromas: wholemeal flour, hot baguette, butter. Sweet with a sulphury underpinning.
Palate
Drier notes emerge: malt and a green, unripe quality. Things begin to turn bitter towards the finish...
Finish
...and end up like cabbage.
Comment
That raw sulphury edge suggests an immature whisky or one where there's been little communication between cask and whisky.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Vibrant fruits: Satsuma, lemon pith and Braeburn apples. Sultanas. With water more lime and a slight oiliness and metallic element, like a hot engine.
Palate
More cute fruits, with artificial lemon and lime flavours.
Finish
Malty toast, made with wholemeal bread.
Comment
Certainly lively, but a little too astringent.
