Taster   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.

Taster   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 violinbow 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.
