Dave Broom

Nose
High cask influence: walnut whip, caramelised fruit sugars, ginger buns, woodsmoke. Deep, resinous with clove and a little cardamom.
Palate
Immediate tannic grip with quite substantial spirit cutting through the oak: fungal, dark chocolate, chestnut purée. Not too tannic.
Finish
Ripe, old, cassis.
Comment
A lot of cask here but strangely subtle for such a heavy beast.

Arthur Motley

72
Nose
Earthy mossiness with a fruit; oranges or raisins. Liquorice bark and furniture polish. Pine and some mustiness.
Palate
Viscous then drying. Some cognac-like fruitiness and aniseed.
Finish
Tannins by the ton. Tree bark.
Comment
Too woody for me, but some people will adore its obvious ‘old-ness'.
