Dave Broom

Nose
Sweet and integrated. Plenty of fresh lime and mint, a little cooked apple and clotted cream.
Palate
Very silky and creamy. Light in terms of the character of aromatics but beds well on the tongue. Juicy yellow plum mid palate.
Finish
Concentrated, sweet, then spicy oak.
Comment
A newcomer immediately holding its own. Has more succulent, yet soft weight than most in its style.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Vanilla kicks things off, then a lift of lemon zest, key lime pie. Very fresh as the oak notes come through.
Palate
Plenty of vanilla custard here, with ginger and some sugared almonds. There is some oak grip too dancing on the tongue.
Finish
Long with that oak gripping.
Comment
A new pretender to the throne of blends, but great stuff from Mr Glaser.
