Arthur Motley

Nose
A pencil case: wood shavings, lead and crayons. Some orange and biscuity character. With water an intriguing aromatic herbal note – perhaps kaffir lime leaves?
Palate
Mouthfilling, fruity, and a little rubbery.
Finish
Lightly bitter and drying.
Comment
A pleasing balance of spirit and wood, but lacked complexity. Young spirit in active oak?

Dave Broom

Nose
Round and crisp. Toasty oak, wood shavings, sacking, raffia. Slightly oily and is that a hint of smoke? Baked apple/pie crust, then green pear (immaturity).
Palate
Slightly thin and a bit flabby. Fern, then cream.
Finish
Zesty.
Comment
This just doesn't have the guts to deliver. A wee, coo'rin, timrous beastie.
