Martine Nouet

Nose
Incredibly phenolic. Creosote. Meaty. Bacon. A slight butyric note in the back. Ash. Smoky when diluted.
Palate
Smooth and sweet then an explosion of pepper and ginger, fading on dry nuttiness.
Finish
Lingering. Liquoriced, with a dry woody bitterness.
Comment
A Speyside? The most Islayish of all the Speysides I have ever tasted. Interesting as a freak even if wood toughens the whole profile a little.

Dave Broom

Nose
Peat. Smoky and turfy moving into coal tar/bitumen with real baked fruit sweetness behind. Opens up into dried heather and turf.
Palate
Immense smoke, then sweet rich mouthfeel with nuttiness and a slight medicinal edge.
Finish
Cereal and smoke. Long. Bitumen. Embers.
Comment
A shock to find something this phenolic in this part of the world – but a great dram.
