Dave Broom

Old, crepuscular. Rancio, tea chest, cedar and musk. Some dried raspberry, dried petals, and heavy toffee. A drop of water brings out an Armagnac note akin to turned earth and prune.
Huge and Ribena-like. Treacle and leather alongside smoke. Solid and robust, and again smoothes at the end.
Smoky and rich. Concentrated red fruits.
Multi-award winning –and you can see why. Mature, complex and elegant.

Rob Allanson

Granny's wardrobe: cedar wood, fur coats, old wood tannins. Leather boots. Also some peppery spice and fading rose petals.
Fresh and crisp. Buttered Digestive biscuits, Parkin cake and bonfire toffees. A little cream too.
Long with a touch of fudge.
Stunning stuff that has aged well.
