Martine Nouet

Nose
Fresh and assertive. Aniseed, star anise. Digestive biscuits. Lime juice. White chocolate. Rhubarb crumble. Opening up on spices.
Palate
Luscious silky feel. Sweet and spicy. Cooked bananas. Lime syllabub. Complex spicy display. Oak underlines the flavours.
Finish
Crisp and clean. Drying out on spices. Slightly nutty.
Comment
A well balanced and refreshing dram. Try it with raw fish and ginger in vinegar.

Dave Broom

Nose
Round, tangy and slightly fat. Plaster, raspberry, tablet and vanilla. A touch of smoke mingling with estery perfume.
Palate
Lighter than the nose suggests and slightly drier. An interesting battle between deep sweetness in the mid-palate and fizzing spiciness. Good balance.
Finish
Zesty soft fruits. Pecan.
Comment
Fine balance and an intriguing palate. An impressive series.
