Martine Nouet

Nose
Melon, cucumber. Fresh almond. Develops smokiness and tarred wood.
Palate
Thirst-quenching. Cucumber juice. Smoky aftertaste.
Finish
Harmonious and gentle.
Comment
More Islay character on the nose than on the palate. A good appetite-teaser.

Dave Broom

Nose
On the more perfumed/aromatic side of smokiness: herring, heather blossom, baked apple, orange. Quite delicate. With a drop of water there's biscuits, lemon and some maritime notes.
Palate
Soft with a rounded mid-palate. Good balance: the gingery/heather tingle rounded out by soft fruit.
Finish
Dry, soft.
Comment
A great, light introduction for Islay virgins but best sipped neat.
