Dave Broom

Nose
Broad, mature, with light turfy smoke and a sweet crispness like cheesecake base. Hint of sourdough, grass, autumn leaves, dry oak.
Palate
Very upfront despite obvious age. Another which is slow to open once it sinks onto the tongue: caramelised black fruit, toffee, brazil nut.
Finish
Surprisingly fresh and almost zesty.
Comment
The mental picture is of an old library filled with leather bound volumes and someone smoking a pipe in the distance.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Lime, underripe mangos and slight sour bready note, like brioche. Spritzy and slightly grassier with water. With more time there are distinct chocolate limes and marzipan.
Palate
Lime marmalade on brown toast. Viscous, then dries out with a little woodiness.
Finish
Complex citrus fruits and woodiness. Candied lemons.
Comment
Enjoyable and distinctive. Like an eccentric old aunt.
