Dave Broom

Nose
Impressive, manages to be light, creamy, oily and smoky at the same time. Ice cream on a seaweed strewn beach, macadamia nut.
Palate
Smoke to start, then immediately sweetens into fat ripe fruits. A peppery attack then smooths and softens.
Finish
A bit cloying which disturbs the balance.
Comment
Worth a try but not the most subtle or refined of the range.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Jelly babies, ripe banana and pineapple and a persistent and brooding woodsmoke. Strawberry jam, sweet mint and creamy vanilla.
Palate
Creamy and viscous with a lovely meld of sweet and smoky flavours. Smoked almonds and woodsmoke, more of those jelly babies.
Finish
Jam and smoke. Relatively short.
Comment
Delicious combination of intense sweetness with moreish smoke.
