Dave Broom

Nose
High intensity.Oils,perfumed smoke, coconut,temple notes along with plum,rose, spearmint. It all calms down with time bringing out curry leaf, sweet fruits and barley sugar.
Palate
Immediate gripping acidity. Big smoke reveals itself alongside some rhubarb like sootiness.In time tar and pitch,the earthy/dry leaf note before menthol. Needs water to soften things and even then the fruit is all balled up in the centre on the tongue.
Finish
Long and intense.
Comment
A magnificent mouthful.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Very powerful nose,masses of incense with dark fruit and delicate floral notes. Rolls of smoke turn into leaf mulch and open humidors. There is a slightly tart edge, like plum skins, as well.
Palate
Huge in the mouth with loads of grips. The smoke is here but with a burnt plum crumble note,a little mint at the end. There is a sweetness at work here too.
Finish
Just keeps going.
Comment
A big hefty thing,with a whack of incense.
