Dave Broom

Nose
A significant departure from the ‘96. Broad. Sweet fresh citrus (clementine) some felt,light ginger,nutmeg,cooling camphor and florals. Still that signature honey.
Palate
Gentle,soft and tongue-coating. Some rye notes but also the florals that have been hidden since the '89. Sage, maraschino,then toffee. Pure.
Finish
Lightly dusted.
Comment
More ordered after the '96. Perfumed.

Rob Allanson

Nose
This has that honey note really at the fore but then this is balanced by a real citrus edge,orange and lemon peels. Floral and a little spice.
Palate
Lovely and soft. Glides across the tongue. More floral perfume notes come through together with fudge and a little custard.
Finish
Coating.
Comment
Very integrated and together.
