Dave Broom

75
Nose
Restrained and salty linseed. Slightly skeletal and needs time to open which puts some flesh on the bones, as does a decent splash of water. Cod liver oil, juniper/pine. Medicinal. Deep Heat rub.
Palate
Oily and smoky. Direct and open faced. Feisty and slightly, aggressive. Hot reminiscent of wasabi on sashimi.
Finish
Seashell, prickly.
Comment
Takes no prisoners.

Arthur Motley

87
Nose
Watermelon, lemon pith and rind. Hot sauna wood, dry haystacks and wet woodsmoke. Coastal, with the smell of fish on the breeze.
Palate
Sweet, smoky with wood cutting through a thick texture. Apple sauce, tar and lemon notes are over-lain but a persistent smoky undcurrent.
Finish
A complex and long-lasting finish that is a combination of fizzy, earthy and spicy.
Comment
Took a while and a bit of water to open up so don't rush it.
