Dave Broom

Nose
Less intense and more covered. Soft and fruit-packed with less overt incense aromas,and light coconut before it deeps into boot polish. While there's lower incense,there's more resin.
Palate
Controlled.Spangles/boiled sweet then a leathery note. Lots of ginger. Again pretty dry though with mouthwatering acidity. There's more obvious structure.
Finish
All spiciness and dry leaves.
Comment
It's as if all the tastes have been turned up to max.

Rob Allanson

Nose
More subtle with the incense aromas wrapped with soft fruits,almost like apricot jam. There is a little coconut shell lurking too with that violin bow resin.
Palate
This has a really big hard sweet note, like those travel sweets that come in tins. Candied orange and dried fruits, root ginger.
Finish
Warming and spicy.
Comment
One for the winter's evenings,big on the warming notes.
