Dave Broom

Nose
A teasing mix of sweet/sour oils. Camphor, varnish, rich oak. Hugely spicy. With water there's nuts, shaved wood and flamed orange peel.
Palate
Intensely spicy, a firm grip and mouthtightening tannins overtake surprising sweetness. Scented lemon, dried rose petal.
Finish
Long wonderfully bitter. Rye!
Comment
Rye is a love or hate thing. I happen to love it. I usually prefer my ryes young, this works.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Vibrant explosion of vanilla, turpentine, banana, pot pourri. Behind these top notes there is an autumn leaf and fermenting grass character.
Palate
Parma violets, burnt lavender, and oak.
Finish
A woody bitterness and burnt rosemary.
Comment
Way, way too much maturation for me.
