Martine Nouet

Nose
Fruit wrestling with oak. Caramelised pineapple. Vanilla toffee. Cider cellar, rooty peat and mushroom.
Palate
Unexpected sharpness. Very peppery. Surprisingly dainty kippery smokiness. Gets a little smoother with water.
Finish
Sergeant Pepper in control. Slowly losing ground to a milder tone.
Comment
A loud lad whose tone needs softening.

Dave Broom

Nose
Ever-changing. Intense, seaside aromas and dense peaty chimney-like smokiness. Dry bracken, hazelnut, sugared almond with lifted fragrant notes: Orange/kumquat, lemon zest.
Palate
Immediate smoke. Vibrant and intense, the peat balancing citrus oils and spiciness. Savoury note.
Finish
Smoky with a little orange muscat.
Comment
Difficult to mark as the next sample will be totally different. A thing of fascination and warped genius.
