Dave Broom

Nose
Light smoke and sea breezes to start with. Quite scented and intense. Tree moss,cypress but balanced by honey and butterscotch. In time there's a hint of chocolate underneath this aroma of old evergreen woods. Complex.
Palate
Smooth and silky with a grassy note. The wooded notes continue mixing with apple,cocoa and sandalwood. Sweet fruit beneath.
Finish
Long,gentle.
Comment
Multi-faceted,elegant and intriguing.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Very full on nose. Lots going on. First suggestions of green tobacco leaves, some smoke and a little marine character. There is an underpinning of honey sweetness and after time a little mint .
Palate
A mouthfilling explosion of sweetness balanced with a cedar and cereal hit. Definite notes of fresh grass.
Finish
A little oily,but long and pleasing.
Comment
A great example of blending. Lots of ways to understand and get into the mind this fascinating dram.
