Dave Broom

77
Nose
Fish market, light smoke and flowers. Weetabix and bourbon biscuits. Very intriguing.
Palate
The chocolate hit is immediate. Explosive smoke ignites in the middle. Deep and quite rugged. Well put together.
Finish
Long, gently smoky.
Comment
Water smooths it down, but the rugged edge is what makes this a winner.

Arthur Motley

67
Nose
Grubby and leathery initially, with a mushy old orange and a bit of woodsmoke. With water a bit of soapiness came up.
Palate
Woodsmoke to the fore, with some baked apple.
Finish
A little burnt plastic.
Comment
Some off-notes which I really didn't like, although the smokescreen saved it.
