Arthur Motley

Nose
Peach and strawberry yoghurts, Refresher sweets, carrots and pears. With time and water a slightly silagey element appears, but recovers to show admirable balance of fruit, earth and wood.
Palate
Buttery, fruity and a slurpy suck of toffee.
Finish
A light burnt-woodiness indicating some age and a slight minerally, coal-tar edge.
Comment
Very enjoyable and marked up for balance and poised integration.

Owen Barstow

Nose
Light and sweet. Coconut ice. Some marshmallow and vanilla. Creamy.
Palate
Oily, fiery, sugary. Some vegetal bitterness. Creamier and more rounded with water.
Finish
Warming. Late, sweet and bitter, liquorice notes. Remember “Imps”?
Comment
Rich and viscous and packed with flavour. Develops some elegance with water.
