Dave Broom

Nose
Green tea,light tobacco. Ginger, cinnamon/cassia and some dusty earth. Very chewy and sweet. This is in line with the 1992. Plummy with chestnut honey. Masses of toffee.
Palate
Big sweet cherry/Peychaud notes. Quite firm. Juicy and gentle
Finish
Clean and long.
Comment
The bigger fatter ones like this and the ‘92 are slightly less expressive.

Rob Allanson

Nose
We seem to have gone back to that turned fresh earth note. A whiff of cigars coupled with a delicate sweetness. The citrus has moved to the back,almost not there.
Palate
The most fruit notes of the batch. Cherries,blackberries and the bitterness of raspberries.
Finish
Very pure, almost cleansing.
Comment
One for after dinner,possibly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
