Martine Nouet

75
Nose
Perfumy. Delicate. Garden mint and honeycomb. A touch of smoke. Apple juice and dry hay when diluted.
Palate
Smooth at start but a bit too soft. The delicacy of the nose is not there. Malty with a toffeish mintiness. A cardboard touch underneath. Appley with water.
Finish
Not very exciting. Clean though.
Comment
A pleasant dram, especially with a splash of water but lacks nerve and buoyancy.

Dave Broom

77
Nose
Light with distinct smoke. Behind there are fragrant white fruits, crab apple, crystallised fruits. In time, a light nuttiness.
Palate
Soft sweet start the peat held in check by balancing acidity. Fresh, lightly smoky and clean.
Finish
Sweet, with smoke drifting by.
Comment
The smoke is a surprise, but well put together.
