Martine Nouet

Nose
Floral. Heather. Lots of herbal notes. Fresh coriander, dill, parsley.
Palate
Lovely fresh feel. Soothing sweetness. Fresh pulpy fruit. Peaches, pears. Develops on bakery notes. Oak keeps its grip but without overdoing it.
Finish
Long, oaky, spicy.
Comment
A bunch of interesting flavours displayed in an elegant oak frame.

Dave Broom

Nose
Clean, rich, dried fruit, stewed rhubarb, raffia. Weighty, concentrated, slightly fungal, deep. Dries a little with water.
Palate
Instead of a blast of weight this spreads discreetly across the tongue. Good complexity and fine balance. Plenty of black fruits. Best neat, though water shows how deep the flavours are.
Finish
Nutty and slightly astringent.
Comment
A good example of a whisky at the start of its mature phase.
