Martine Nouet

Nose
Tickly. Floral. Bergamot. Earl grey tea. Pear drop. Caramel. Develops on sour fruit (green apple, orange juice). An enticing perfumy display.
Palate
Mellow, but a bit soft and watery on midpalate. Develops on hot spices (tabasco).
Finish
Dry and hot.
Comment
Has an aromatic profile close to a rye whiskey. Quite charming. Too bad it has been emasculated by an excessive dilution. A handsome eunuch?

Dave Broom

Nose
Clean and quite aromatic: herbs, eucalyptus, green almond, white asparagus behind some sandalwood. High rye.
Palate
Light, fresh and clean. A scented (furniture polish) quality to it. Turkish Delight. Slick and soft.
Finish
Dry. Rye flour.
Comment
Clean and fresh. Mid-morning.
