Martine Nouet

Nose
Oaky at start then fruity notes. Pinewood forest. Humus, bracken. Dates and apricots. Marmalade. Biscuity notes. Madeira cake. Toffee.
Palate
Velvety and round. Sweet fruit. Blancmange. Stem ginger. With water, becomes herbal and malty.
Finish
Medium, nutty with soft spices. Liquorice.
Comment
Quite a rich and complex malt. Needs a long aeration to release it all.

Dave Broom

Nose
Like eating a sultana cake next to a peat fire. Becomes medicinal, Savlon. Has a certain buttery sweetness.
Palate
Soft with dried fruits and a mix of nut and peat. Rounded and soft. The peat seems suppressed.
Finish
Dried fruit. Ash.
Comment
The finish swamps the whisky a little.
