Dave Broom

Nose
Serious. Good weight, with lots of caramelised peach, some fruit cake, red cherry, hard toffee, lime marmalade alongside some macadamia and tisane.
Palate
That cherry comes through alongside cigar wrapper. Water moves it to sweet, honeyed, soft fruits, vanilla and double cream with masses of nutmeg and great length. Balancing grip.
Finish
Spices. Good length.
Comment
A smooth, steel fist in an ornate velvet glove.

Rob Allanson

Nose
There is a nuttiness that comes with age, burnt brown sugar with an orange zest lift. A zip of citrus, lime lemon then dried fruits take over.
Palate
Custard egg tarts with cinnamon and nutmeg. The fresh citrus comes through as well with an oak influence tying all together.
Finish
Long and engaging.
Comment
Dismiss this relative youngster at your peril, serious stuff.
