Martine Nouet

Nose
Malty and grassy. Ripe straw. Orange blossom honey. Cider apple and dried pear.
Palate
Sweet and smooth at start. But soon drying on teasing spices. Quite hot.
Finish
Dry, soothing on creamy custard with a nutty touch.
Comment
A warm character if not hot. It needs a dash of water to find its balance and round up. Certainly a winter warmer.

Nose
Initially sweet then this lovely smokiness develops. There is a hot dry quality too, like warm sand or ground black pepper.
Palate
Barley sugar sweets and soft fruits and apple skins. That smoke is more bonfire now with a peat edge.
Finish
Long with the smoke still going.
Comment
This is better than other Brora's I have tried. Balanced and poised.
