Dave Broom

70
Nose
Damp hay and coal dust with some farmyard notes. Cheese rind and penetrating alcohol. Sulphurous.
Palate
Biscuity, then liquorice soon overtaken by a dank note like a wet cellar. Lacks mid-palate oomph.
Finish
Suddenly appears to improve, but then the sulphur returns.
Comment
I find it a little grubby.

Arthur Motley

75
Nose
Butter, kiwi, apples and peardrops. Spritzy with grapefruit and lime, but a little sharp and bordering on metallic. An ovaltiney background and a sweet egginess, like custard tarts.
Palate
A robust cereal character, plums, vanilla and some nutmeg.
Finish
Milk chocolate.
Comment
Put off slightly by that combination of sharpness and sweet egg, but pleasant enough.
