Dave Broom

Nose
Moist soft toffee mixed with turmeric, wet leaves. Lightly nutty,then a touch of vanilla custard and black butter. Fat and round with some green edges.
Palate
Broad and the best integration of the spicy element. Broad and mature, those leathery notes reappear,but with an expressive wild nature. The rye is there but is held slightly in check by the rich and yes honeyed palate... until the finish. With water there's lemon balm and some pepperiness.
Finish
Highly spiced.
Comment
Big and bold.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Soft. Like a humidor or grass compost. Damp moss. Some toffee with a distinct herbal quality.
Palate
Huge spice hit full of rye pep,but balanced with leather and honey. There is citrus here too.
Finish
Delightfully spicy.
Comment
This one will make you sit up and notice it.
