Dave Broom

Taster

Nose: Floral, the barley sugar, stewed apple, dry grass, toasted marshmallow, butter, light spices and balanced oak.

Palate: Sweet and light, but with a full, soft centre, the floral notes balanced by the oak.

Finish: Clean and dry.

Comment: It's held up superbly well and has good weight for such an apparently gentle spirit.

Score: 8
