Arthur Motley

Nose
Greenhouses full of tomato plants, Seville oranges, putty and fish oil. With time, burnt driftwood and heather.
Palate
More Seville oranges, arrabbiata sauce, heather and creosoted wood.
Finish
Clove-spice.
Comment
Excellent, although I was slightly put off by the fishiness. I think all fish are stinking, slimey creatures however, so I am admittedly biased.

Owen Barstow

Nose
Delicate yet complex. Sweet yet savoury, with a salty earthiness in there somewhere. Faint linseed character at the end.
Palate
Confident. Firm. Sweet. Salty. Pronounced phenol development. Fiery. Burnt and burning peat.
Finish
Warming and medicinal. Reminiscent of the aroma of polished antique furniture.
Comment
Easier drinking with water, but for full effect...
