Martine Nouet

A hospital note. Ether even chloroform. Slowly fading away to give way to candy floss, barley sugar, vanilla syrup, demerara sugar caramel. Then a distinct peppery note which balances the sweetness
Sweet and smooth. Burnt caramel, demerara sugar, treacle, raisins in eau-de-vie. Then that peppery touch of the nose comes back with an oaky touch.
Dry, peppery.
Once the funny off note has gone, we have a pleasant whisky, not over sweet. Refreshing spicy profile.

Rob Allanson

Menthol. Eucalyptus gum trees then orange barley water, brown sugar, melting caramel and toffee apples. Roasted capsicum with balsamic vinegar and crushed black peppercorns.
Bags of sugar, treacle and raisin Danish pastry. A custard note as well. Creamy oak, bread and butter pudding. That roast capsicum sweetness comes through at the end.
Lush, creamy and oak laden.
An engaging, intriguing and interesting whisky.
