Dave Broom

Nose
Fresh and ‘young'. Lots of green notes - apple and cut grass. A little cream in the background along with wheat chaff and barley sugar.
Palate
Lively and effervescent. Dry spices, light sweetness, fresh cereal then simple sugar and a lightly floral centre. Barely touches the tongue.
Finish
Short but sweet.
Comment
A clean, fresh young mixer.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Vibrant, lively and crisp, like slicing into a fresh green apple. Creamy notes too, pouring cream and cornflakes.
Palate
Rolls through the mouth swiftly leaving orange sugar-coated fruit jellies. There is a little spicy edge to this as well.
Finish
Crisp and short.
Comment
One for the summer days, possibly with ginger and ice too.
