Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Acetone, a hint of glue, bubblegum. Is your name Ester by any chance? Very grassy. After the volatiles fly off you're left with (cloudy) apple juice, marzipan, gooseberry jam and light oak.
Palate: Good layering of fruits. You can almost feel the velvet skin of the apricot as it slides over the tongue. Creamy.
Finish: Soft with a slight tart note.
Comment: Another whose palate runs counter to its nose.
7.5
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Gala melon, struck flint and warm bread. Watermelon and pear drops. Borders on that over-chemically esters board-marker note.
Palate: Fruity (melons and pears), fruit salad chews, then bone dry.
Finish: Bourbon-like woodiness, and more dryness.
Comment: Some delightful fruity elements but ultimately dominated by woodiness. Don't attempt if you don't like dry whisky!
