Martine Nouet

Nose
Slightly butyric at start. Wet straw. Cowshed with a whiff of creosote. Dry seashells, tar rope. Vanilla rising up with caramel notes.
Palate
Very sweet then drying out on smoke and soot. Definitely phenolic. Earthy roots.
Finish
Dry, sooty, vanishing quite quickly then sweet maltiness coming back.
Comment
Dour at first then opening up in a delightful way. Take your time to get acquainted with this fellow and you'll like it.

Michael Jackson

Nose
Slow to develop. Delicate. Pine resin, wood glue, shavings. Toffee base notes.
Palate
Drying, then malty. Nice cereal development. Fresh egg pasta? Fruity (muesli?) character with water.
Finish
Smooth, confident. Sherry and bitter cacao in the tail.
Comment
Reticent at first, shows itself to be a well structured whisky delivering mature flavours.
