Dave Broom

70
Nose
Rubbery, firm with a strange mealy dustiness. Sulphur obscuring other character.
Palate
Light smoke with a deep and heavy midpalate. A powerful flavour though with water that youthful sulphury note comes back.
Finish
Earthy and deep.
Comment
For me this has been bottled too early and before the sulphuriness of youth has been fully matured out.

Arthur Motley

70
Nose
Green plums, roasted cheese, a slightly prickly, chemically note. With water there is a doughy note, with a bit of bran husk like a bran scone. Plum or cherry sauce.
Palate
Quite broad on the palate, a youthful maltiness and some apple.
Finish
Light, sweet breadiness.
Comment
Relatively uneventful.
