Nose
Extreme resin. Pitch pine. Railway sleepers.
Palate
The chestnut colour is a warning. Although the spirit is very lively, and toffeeish fruitiness and spiciness manage to put in an appearance, none of these flavours can fully express themselves under the burden of such sherry and wood.
Finish
Woody, astringent.
Comment
For the collector.

Dave Broom

Nose
Rich, thick and concentrated. Like stumbling into a warm fuggy pub after a long walk over the hills: tobacco, lanolin, Madeira, smoke.
Palate
Big fruit, smoke and firm wood makes for a serious impact. Robust and rugged but with a sweet centre. For those who like 'em BIG, smoky and sherried.
Finish
Long, drying, slightly tannic.
Comment
More Motorhead than Mozart.
