Dave Broom

74
Nose
Bold and oily with a slight sour note reminiscent of goats cheese. Smoke, sealing wax and stables.
Palate
Better than the nose,army blankets, nutty but then the sour lactic note reemerges in the centre. Big and briny with mink oil.Richly textured.Oil skins and some smoke.
Finish
Thick and clinging.
Comment
The nose is off-putting,which knocks the score down, but the palate delivers.

Nose
Tangy. A earthy fungal note. Damp wood and cellar. Sour apple skin. A lactic aroma lingers above a sweeter note.Cooked apples in honey.
Palate
Smooth,fruity and pleasant. Cooked peaches in a honeyed syrup. Fresh apple juice. Muesli. Quite appetising.
Finish
Long,liquoriced.
Comment
This unpleasant “something”on the nose fades in time and the palate is really satisfying. It is just a question of giving it time to chase the musty aroma away!
