Martine Nouet

80
Nose
A generous sherry character. Crème brûlée. Amaretto. Rhubarb jam. Quite an exotic profile. Sandalwood, vetiver.
Palate
Sweet mellow toffee.
Finish
Muscular. Cinnamon, liquorice.
Comment
A well matured and well balanced malt. The sherry notes tend to muzzle the distillery character. An iron hand in a velvet glove!

Dave Broom

80
Nose
Deep and powerful. Burnt raisin and cinnamon. Date loaf, dried fig.
Palate
Leathery and deep, fine tannins and light meatiness. Savoury and intense. Chicory, rose.
Finish
Coffee bean.
Comment
Brooding and slow to develop. Classic European oak but the spirit has enough weight to cope with the chunky wood.
