Dave Broom

Nose
Mellow. Sherry notes: nuts, light dried fruits. Fresh cereal, sweet sawdust and mellow fruits. Sufficient dry grass and flowers to add complexity and lift. Darjeeling tea wine accents.
Palate
Soft and light entry, then floats across the tongue. The juiciness (pear) helps anchor it and that thickness in the middle is the key.
Finish
Berry fruits.
Comment
A teasing mix of sweet and dry. One of the best ‘standards'.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Malty at first, fresh bread and warmed biscuits. Honey flapjacks and pencil shavings. Cake mix and dried fruits.
Palate
More baked cereals, light caramels and vanilla. Some juciy fruits, red apples and pears.
Finish
Resin like and a little fiery, in a good way. Warming.
Comment
Of a very high standard, plenty going on and all in balance.
