Dave Broom

90
Nose
Substantial with good maturity. Orange peel and ginger, drying grass, barley sugar, passion fruit, banana skin and a wholemeal maltiness.
Palate
Very silky with marzipan, sweet nut and dried tropical fruits, peach. Honeycomb, chocolate and mint. Multi-layered and surprisingly deep.
Finish
Immensely long. Trickles down the back of the throat.
Comment
A stunner.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Baked bananas, green apples and pear drops. An attractive and subtle meadow note. Custard. A little pencil shavings woodiness.
Palate
Sweet banana custard, toffee apple followed by drying spice.
Finish
Cinnamon.
Comment
Again, pleasant very pretty. A really good example of American oak maturation.
