Dave Broom

Nose
Aromatic, with a bruised mint/peppermint note. Musky, heading towards camphor. Rose petals and, with water, a toasty/sawdust note.
Palate
A hint of soapiness, then comes vanilla and spices. Water softens things but it retains a sparkling sweet zestiness. Clean and fragrant.
Finish
Sweet wood sugars. Raspberry.
Comment
All very light and clean and highly quaffable, but just lacks a little mid-palate depth.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Vanilla, iced gems, wet clay, parma violets. Then a Radox pine character.
Palate
Banana chews, vanilla in waves and a grainy, popcorn character.
Finish
Astringent and bitter, drying oak.
Comment
Demanded ice, a hot day and a sizzling barbecue.
