Martine Nouet

Nose
Elegant, refined. Orange crème brûlée. Chocolate slowly shines through. Beeswax.
Palate
Silky, very sensuously coating the mouth. Slightly clinging to the palate. Candied orange. Marmalade. Cloves and cinnamon. Very rich.
Finish
Drier, Seville oranges, a touch of liquorice.
Comment
An elegant dram, dominated by orange and spices. For a Christmas treat? Water is not needed.

Dave Broom

Nose
Ripe, very sweet and long. Toasted/polished oak, light resin notes, nutmeg.
Palate
Still sweet: a soft start, vanilla custard, a hint of dried fruit, baked banana, cinnamon, vanilla. Honeyed centre. Toasted, indeed roasted, wood gives much needed grip.
Finish
Membrillo.
Comment
Exuberant, sweet and extremely well balanced. A great introduction to whisky.
