Dave Broom

Nose
Oak driven. Edgy and plain with hard malt and freshly planed wood.
Palate
As the nose suggests. A picture of oak shavings piled on top of a fruit salad. Hollow midpalate. There's two elements to this and they ain't talking to each other.
Finish
Hard and lean.
Comment
This suggests a young spirit and lots of oak. Not balanced.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Spicy, sappy oak. Pine, cloves and fudge. Some apple and lemon peel. Danish pastry overspiced with nutmeg. Pencil shavings.
Palate
Toffeeish and spicy
Finish
Great texture and body of youth, cut through by bold oak.
Comment
The ‘organic' bit feels like first-ism to me, and not as important as the ‘virgin oak' part. The first new oak malt that has worked for me.
