Dave Broom

70
Nose
Mealy with notes of pancake batter and dry wood shavings. There's some smoke and a youthful, putty-like edge. With water it shows youthfulness.
Palate
Initially it has better balance and depth than the nose, though it still appears tight before a huge blast of parma violets comes through and, with water, a little soapiness.
Finish
Firm and lightly smoky.
Comment
A step down from the previous versions. Seek those out.

Nose
Intense. Floral. With an earthy character. Gillyflowers. A hint of smoked oysters. Some vanilla slowly creeping in. In time, creosote.
Palate
Sweet at start, followed by a strong earthy flavour with some mustiness in the back. Touch of liquorice. Very dry.
Finish
Short and quickly fading.
Comment
The nose is appealing. This batch N°3 does not have the “guts” of the previous ones.
