Martine Nouet

Nose
Marine smokiness, Islay tinged. Cooked plums. Creosote. Smoked ham. Oyster chowder.
Palate
Assertive. Malty sweetness. Distinctively peaty with a sea-spray freshness.
Finish
Warm, spicy and dry.
Comment
Conclusion: A true and easy-going mariner. Straight forwardness takes the place of complexity. Is Caol Ila a major player in the vatting?

Dave Broom

Nose
Biscuity, quite dry lifted by sugar puff sweetness, mandarine peel, heather. Hint of turfy smoke, stewed tea.
Palate
Smoke, then nutty malt, light oak, coconut. Crisp and firm. A little disappointing after the nose.
Finish
Firm. Light peat.
Comment
Briefly this reminded me of the smell in the old Glasgow subway. Well put together.
