Nose
Very fresh. Fresh apple.
Palate
Oily but also grainy. Sweet start, becoming grassy and mustardy.
Finish
Firm, long, appetising.
Comment
Very much in line with recent bottlings. Not especially peaty, but crisp, clean and decisive in it's flavours.

Dave Broom

Nose
Waxy. Dried and overripe fruit. Becomes creamier with water. The waxiness is always there, but there's a slightly dirty note.
Palate
Honey, some sweetness. Engine oil.
Finish
Soft.
Comment
A good one, though spoiled by that slightly grubby character.
