Dave Broom

Nose
Firm with grippy oak. Slightly hard underneath with some fruits trying to break through quite grippy wood. Green oak/freshly laid decking then some vanilla and the resinous note also seen in 451.
Palate
Very soft with full oakiness and a slight nuttiness. Red fruits and cherry.
Finish
Oaky.
Comment
This is all about the wood and while I can see the commercial interest this is just an interesting experiment that's been bottled. Personally, I prefer it in refill and am willing to wait.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Very closed at first, just gentle vanillas, soft dark sugar. Hints of oak spices, cinnamon and a herbal quality.
Palate
Big oak vanilla spices. Toffee and cream.
Finish
Lush and rich.
Comment
This is the start of something good.
