Dave Broom

72
Nose
Singed, like a burning carpet, or burning hair (maybe a flaming toupee?) Malty, with cocoa nibs and an earthy weight.
Palate
A similarly charred start. Clean enough, with a burnt almond edge. Grippy but it is killed with the addition of water.
Finish
Firm and nutty.
Comment
Don't get me wrong, there's nothing bad with this it's just amazingly bland.

Arthur Motley

70
Nose
Metallic and meat: like the roasting tin as you pull out the joint of pork. Grassy, citric and a bit earthy.
Palate
Baked ham, toffee and some tinned peaches.
Finish
Spices, perhaps morrocan.
Comment
OK, fine, solid. Whisky should be more though, right?
