Dave Broom

Nose
Sweeter and slightly heavier.Orange peel. More oak and bigger,thicker, honeyed notes. Rye,barley sugar, stewed fruits,caramel and coconut. Water brings out coffee beans.
Palate
Soft and oak led.Church pews. Hickory. Lots of menthol and black fruits, blackberry jam.Light toffee,giving sweetness and coriander seed,giving a citric edge.
Finish
Crisp oak.
Comment
Fuller,but well balanced.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Leather and heather notes initially. Followed by citrus notes and a little mint. Barley sugar sweets and a café latté hint,warmed milk.
Palate
Gentle then the oak notes burst through. Cricket bats and a little toffee, spices and a cotton candy edge. Then dark fruits and a slight camphor whiff.
Finish
Drying and clean.
Comment
Things are getting bigger in terms of the taste profile,more complex.
