Martine Nouet

Nose
Enticing, lively and aerial. Light smoke mingled with summer flowers fragrances.
Palate
Velvety, gently spreading on the tongue. Creamy light toffee teased by a hint of smoke. A mouth-watering texture.
Finish
Balanced, smoke over dry grassiness.
Comment
A warm, clean and charming whisky. The Islay influence is there but gently flirting with a mainland fellow. An accomplished character.

Dave Broom

Nose
Smoky, bacon fat mingling with peach, cocoa powder. Aromatic and almost floral.
Palate
Very focused in the front of the mouth giving a really sweet start. Fragrant vetiver grassiness, then butterscotch. Good length. Oily.
Finish
Long, creamy.
Comment
As much about texture and balance as it is about smoke. Not as monstrous as I recall, but very good.
