Martine Nouet

80
Nose
Heady and ample sherry notes. Morello cherry. Loads of vanilla. Old furniture.
Palate
Incredibly sprightly for its age. Speaks out. Trifle, toasted coffee, hint of smoke.
Finish
Very spicy. Cinnamon, ginger, hot paprika.
Comment
Bossily buoyant. Loses in delicacy what it gains in flavour and texture. Miles away from the Lowlands.

Dave Broom

82
Nose
Big and sweet with oily qualities and soft sherry notes: moist sultana cake, cherry/red berries. Wood-derived aromas.
Palate
Huge and powerful with incense, walnut, chocolate and ripe rich fruity notes. Honeyed warmth.
Finish
Long big and nutty, with spice.
Comment
What a contrast!
