Martine Nouet

A sour note at start. Cow milking station. Then exotic fruit. Caramelised pineapple, dry coconut. Tamarind juice.
Syrupy. Mouth-coating. Sweet but with a good balance between sweet and sour. Coconut flan. Fresh ginger
Balanced. Sappy. Hint of mint and ginger.
Forget about the first nose and enjoy that luscious exotic profile. But no water, thank you.

Dave Broom

Oily, big and peachy (and come to think of it, beachy). Whisky-saturated barrels. A strangely appetising mix of apricot, ripe fruit and wet oilskins.
Lush and rounded with a rich, deep almost leathery structure. Unctuous and fruity. Balanced.
Big, long and oily.
Seems like a younger whisky, if so it has held its own very well in some pretty extraordinary company.
