Dave Broom

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.
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.
Orange zest and malt.
Spicier than the standard, but the lifted purity of flavour which defines the house style is there.

Rob Allanson

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.
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.
Quite long and warming.
Raises the bar from the standard blend, the tickle of age has helped.
