Martine Nouet

Nose
Intense, mature. Beeswax, Crème brûlée. Cider cellar (old wood, apples, damp walls) Toasted nuts. Parma violet. What an aromatic trip!
Palate
Neat. Stewed fruit (apricot and prunes). Rose syrup. Delicate oak.
Finish
Long, reluctantly fading. Pleasantly bitter. Dark chocolate. Walnut skin. Passion fruit.
Comment
A pure beauty. Absolutely beaming on nose and palate. The best a sherry cask can offer.

Dave Broom

Nose
Similar to the 16 Years Old, though with greater elegance and maturity: more biscuity notes, saddles, dried fruits, demerara, sultana cake, roasted chestnut.
Palate
Mature: bung cloth, spices galore. Good full mouthfeel with fine tannic grip, toffee, and a sweet, yet nutty balance.
Finish
Toffee – then goes on forever.
Comment
Subtle, nuanced and complex.
