Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: An unreduced nose of smoked cheese, toasty wood, rich fruits, rubber and crème brûlée. With water added: honey, fresh sawdust and bran.
Palate: Sweet, concentrated red fruits along with toffee, caramelised fruit and a soft grainy mid-palate.
Finish: Clean and dry with a hint of lemon.
Comment: A soft, gentle, labrador of a dram.
