Dave Broom

70
Nose
Foursquare and solid. Musk. Lanolin and a butiric note. Smoke, cigar leaf, wet leather.
Palate
Immediate robust smokiness. Coal scuttle. Slightly biscuity. In time wood and a coriander seed spiciness. Slightly salty. The butiric note is just apparent. Rich and powerful.
Finish
Oily and long. Robust.
Comment
A big beast, but the butiric knocks its score down.

Nose
Intense, with a sweet burning rubber, scorched treacle toffee, peat. An essential oil character too, somewhere between rosemary and tea tree. Some coal tar soap and ghee.
Palate
Spicy, peaty: kappow! The peatiness and the spices remind me of Moroccan food.
Finish
Harissa paste.
Comment
A real bruiser, that comes out with fists flying.
