Rich toffee. Creamy. Slightly smoky.

Bittersweet. Lively.

Big . Rich. Hearty. Robust.

Dave Broom

Nose
Showing good maturity, mixing sweetness (apricot, plum, vanilla) with dry notes (green peppercorn, cold tea, biscuit). Elegant.
Palate
Big. Layers of flavour and deep fruitiness. Old leather, oaky tannins just picking up. Complex.
Finish
Dusty spices.
Comment
Has a different level of depth and complexity. Sip and savour.
