Nose
Beeswax. Old furniture. Black pepper. Boat rope. Wet sand. Touch of seaweed. Crisp bacon. Gooseberry.
Palate
Sweet at start then slightly bitter. Wood comes quickly through. Smoked meat. Smoked almonds.
Finish
Sweet and spicy. Dry.
Comment

Dave Broom

Nose
Fishboxes, pier heads, light smoke. Somewhat reminiscent of a manzanilla pasada: green olive and saltiness (oh yes there is) albeit with smoke. Yeasty, vibrant, heathery, fresh.
Palate
Fresh. Marine notes. Immediate smoke, leading to a sweet, lightly oily centre. White pepper.
Finish
Vibrant, prickly. Turfy.
Comment
Elemental. Another classic...
