Dave Broom

Nose
Light to medium. Sweet,toffee apple, lemon sponge cake, lime Starburst, soft fruits and a little coconut cream/sherbert. With water, there's fresh oak, tarte tatin and peach.
Palate
Slightly dumb start, then it flows into succulent grain which softens further with water. Slow, easy and sweet with a mix of butter and light dried fruit.
Finish
Orange zest and malt.
Comment
Spicier than the standard, but the lifted purity of flavour which defines the house style is there.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Very soft at first then this honeyed note builds, breakfast cereal, apples and runny honey. There is also more wood coming through now with coconut and jucy fruits.
Palate
Takes a little time to show its true colours then becomes graceful and elegant. Balance of grain spices and that juicy fruit from the nose.
Finish
Quite long and warming.
Comment
Raises the bar from the standard blend, the tickle of age has helped.
