Nose
Delicate, floral. Orange blossom. Apricot and almond pie cooking in the oven. Develops on toffee. A peat echo.
Palate
Caressing, luscious, rich. Peach melba. Floral honey. Pear drop.
Finish
Smooth, sensuous, deliciously lingering. Spicy dryness.
Comment
What a lovely nectar. Great fruit and cream combination.

Dave Broom

80
Nose
Buttery yet oily. Complex notes of car mechanic workshop, coconut oil, black olives in brine. With water, goats' cheese, smoke and candied peel.
Palate
The oiliness shows best here giving a mouth coating texture. Lemon, light spices. Ever so slightly salty. Pure flavours.
Finish
That salty cheese again.
Comment
Fantastic balance, but uncompromising.
