Dave Broom

Nose
Initially there's damp earth in the late summer. Wet cut grass, macadamia, Weetabix sprinkled with sugar, tangerine. Slightly musty.
Palate
Ripe/baked summer fruits baked. The oak sits on top of some crispbread, toffee and melting chocolate.
Finish
Nutmeg and cinnamon, digestive biscuit and light smoke.
Comment
Best neat.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Freshly cut apples, white pepper, orange sorbet, blackberry jam, and cold roast lamb.
Palate
Berry fruits, dark chocolate sauce and then a dryish harissa spice.
Finish
Some spicy woodsmoke.
Comment
Unusual, and composed of many distinct elements that mesh well.
