Martine Nouet

Nose
Tangy. Nutty. Sweet and sour. Candy floss. Unsweetened apples. A distinct pepperiness. In the back, a cereal and grassy note.
Palate
Sweeter and less creamy than expected. Gently flowing. Develops on drier oaky notes. Liquorice. Nutmeg.
Finish
Dry, liquoriced. Inclining to bitterness.
Comment
Oak (and age) has lessened the creaminess and sweetness of the spirit. Would probably tune in with a cigar, but too oaky for me.

Dave Broom

Nose
Sweet and dense. Apricot jam, stewed fruits, charred oak. A cooperage smell of charring casks and oil. Custard, cedar and a little tobacco leaf.
Palate
Rounded. A very sweet start, liquorice, slight dip in the centre before spiced apple takes over on the finish.
Finish
Sweet. Candy. Oak.
Comment
Another from the big-boned camp.
