Dave Broom

Nose
Smoky fires.Heather,liquorice root and bilberry. A mix of earthy smoke, pork crackling and a light seaweed touch. Sweetness runs underneath. Balanced. Light complexity.
Palate
Immediate. A rich complex mix of pepper flakes then a really sweet soft fruitiness,all linked by a sooty/mossy smokiness. Hint of sulphur. A lively, exuberant mix of sea and shore,the sweet the fiery and the smoky.
Finish
Peppery and dry.
Comment
Once again balance struck between seemingly contradictory elements.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Bonfires on the beach. Smoked ham and salt. Sweetness pins it altogether. There are layers of earthy tones.
Palate
Roast peppers with cracked black pepper. Sweet and spiced with a delicate softness in there.
Finish
Dry and spiced.
Comment
Balanced and wonderful. Take me to Skye in the summer and let me drink this on the beach.
