Martine Nouet

Nose
Cider. Burnt apple tree. A rustic bouquet. Cow-shed. Distant smokiness. Earthy roots. Freshly baked multi-grain bread. Sultanas. A seashore echo.
Palate
Smooth and soft. Too soft. Sweetness thickens mouthfeel and taste. Nutty. Wood is there, not dominating but blurring the flavours.
Finish
Slightly spicy, sweet. Liquorice. Lacks elegance.
Comment
The nose is lively but the palate is put to sleep by sweetness.

Dave Broom

Nose
Immediate peatiness. Turfy rather than marine. Phenolics, macadamia nut, horchata. Light meaty note. Sweet centre.
Palate
Light smoke lying above firm, young grassy, notes. Beech nuts, heather. Silky feel.
Finish
Good length. Drifting smoke.
Comment
This seems to have the peatiness more to the fore than in the past.
