Dave Broom

Nose
Thick and quite syrupy. Stewed, sweet fruits, think persimmon, dried grasses and sweet fresh oak. As it opens, a little more rooty age, dunnage, mushroom, hint of balsam. Needs time in the glass.
Palate
Crisp and clean. A slightly drier and firmer structure. Nut shell then into melting chocolate and hazelnut. Time adds softness and fruit cake. Layered.
Finish
Blackberry and blackcurrant.
Comment
Less effusive and open than the 21 but the depth is mysterious and rewarding as well.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Not a great talker at first, but then this big rich character emerges, all fruit and nut, cherries, caramel and some smoke. Marmalade as well.
Palate
There is a rich fruit cake sweetness here, with cinnamon and chocolate. Spices build over time.
Finish
Long and nutty.
Comment
Overall this is soft and sumptuous.
