Dave Broom

Nose
Soft and sweet but with a green edginess. More eucalyptus. Some herbal notes,baked bread,allspice, mint. Higher levels of wood sugars,but also pea pods,light anise.
Palate
Soft and fragrant again the eucalypt/laurel note mixed with jalapeno heat to start. Sweet centred though with good grip. A pomegranate/sumac like sourness, then spices ramp up.
Finish
Clean and zesty.
Comment
Improved with water. Restrained again with an edgier character than the 89.

Rob Allanson

Nose
There's a herbal edge to this with hints of menthol. Green grass and fresh picked runner beans. Camphor shaving cream.
Palate
Starts off soft and gentle then the spices kick in quite late. Wonderful grip. A little fresh chilli heat and bitterness.
Finish
That chilli seed heat stays with you.
Comment
Feels like its holding something back right to the end then it slugs you one.
