Martine Nouet

Nose
Big brutal sherry. Winey. Quite beefy. Marmite. Overpowering sherrywood. Tobacco.
Palate
Toffee but with rancid butter notes. Cardboard. No subtlety in that sherry first-fill. Where has the malt gone?
Finish
Long but bitter. Smoky burnt wood.
Comment
You need to be sherry-mad to love this. Water releases more pleasant fruitcake notes on the nose but more harshness on the palate.

Dave Broom

Nose
The colour suggests European oak and the nose is a classic dry amontillado: resin, clove, savoury notes-roasted almond, flamed orange peel, smoked tea, some toffee.
Palate
Heavy sherry flavours, almond especially. A slightly oily but tannic feel. There's perfumed smoke but the spirit is beefed up by heavy oak flavours.
Finish
Smoked cheese.
Comment
The richest by far, but all of it wood-driven.
