Taster   Dave Broom

Finish: Dry and biscuity.

Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: A hint of fruit (apricot?), then creamy, with some peaty dryness. Appetising. Fresh.
Palate: Lightly fudgy and nutty.
Finish: A late balancing dryness and a surprising surge of spiciness. Reminiscent of cinnamon, then gingery.
Comment: Approachable - even amiable - but with some substance. Wintery flavours that are warming without being challenging.
