Martine Nouet

Nose
Light, tangy. Mustardy. Spirity. Dry hay, mint. A touch of tangerine. Water enhances a butyric note.
Palate
Sweet at start then developing on mustard and spices. Biting. Fresh oak. A musty note.
Finish
Lingering and spicy. A bitter edge with water.
Comment
Quite an energetic guy which needs water to be tamed. A classic light Speysider, lacking elegance though.

Dave Broom

75
Nose
High nose-burn without water. Very buttery with lots of top-notes: freesia, citrus peels, jasmine, lilac, estery, green pear, dolly mixtures.
Palate
Very sweet and hot without water but jammed full of fruit. Slight pooling of fruits in centre.
Finish
Citric and punchy. Short.
Comment
Call me a wimp if you want, but the high alcohol has just blurred everything here.
