Dave Broom

Big, mature, and ripe. Suede, dust, walnut and a hint of varnish. Chestnut honey, Chinese black Oolong, berry fruits. Balanced and complex. Fruit leather (in both senses).
Again that peachy ripeness. So much fruit that it bulges and expands in the middle of the tongue. Butterscotch, then light liquorice and cedar.
Gentle and smooth.
Ripeness and weight is the key here. A gentle monarch.

Rob Allanson

Mellow and complex, sweet fruits and dark rich honey. Almost bourbon biscuits. A spiced apple note, cinnamon and baked sultanas.
A nutty edge balances all the soft fruits, rich flavours too of cigar boxes and Angel Delight.
Long and spicy.
Stunning blending.
