Martine Nouet

Nose
Intense. Prickly. Enormous. Highly medicinal. Hospital emergency service. Scents enveloped by a light veil of smoke. Oak is soaked in camphor. Fruit rise up later.
Palate
Assertive and pungent. Smoke lingers on tastebuds. Medicinal flavours in the front stage.
Finish
Dry, spicy, with a touch of earthy peat. Nutty as well.
Comment
The tough guy. Medicine man? Muscular, solidly built. Dominated by camphor.

Dave Broom

Nose
Robust. Scented candles, cough medicine, hospitals, peat bog, kipper, always a cereal note.
Palate
Immediate peat and cereal mixing (with water) a light fruity note with a peatiness which clings to the palate. Still tarry and deep.
Finish
Light pepper, oatcake and, finally, lingering smoke.
Comment
Overall, the combination of peat smoke and overt cereal notes makes this a very dry whisky.
