Martine Nouet

Nose
Fruity. Citrussy. Olde English Marmalade. Apples steeped in caramel. Star fruit.
Palate
Silky. Slowly opening on pastry flavours. Watermelon. Almond cake. Beautiful mouthfeel.
Finish
Long, spicy. Ginger and chilli. A soothing almond milk aftertaste.
Comment
A well-balanced dram. Nothing lacking, nothing too much. Just pleasant.

Dave Broom

Nose
Malty, cereal, lightly honeyed. Light with toasted almond, nougat, wholemeal bread, light earth, cut grass.
Palate
Round but firm, a surge of initial maltiness softens into green pear, green walnut, mandarin.
Finish
Dry and clean.
Comment
Another good session dram.
