Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Ripe, fruity and well balanced. Sherry, dried fruits and a hint of smoke. Water brings out a buttery edge. A lot going on.
Palate: Overall, a little drier than the nose suggests but with excellent, soft, mid-palate weight. Light smoke all the way through.
Finish: Ripe and soft.
Comment: Very well balanced. A lovely blend.

Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fresh smokiness. The smell of burning hay. Earthy.
Palate: Sweet and salty. Firm, cereal-grain maltiness. Peanut butter on toast.
Finish: Orange and ginger marmalade. Satisfying. Sustaining.
Comment: The aromas and flavours evoke breakfast, but in a farmhouse kitchen with an open fire, rused and dashed by the winds down the chimney.
