Martine Nouet

Nose
Marine, phenolic, peppery. Tarred boat, shellfish, peat embers and some smoke. A hint of bogmyrtle. And above all these sea aromas, a hovering malty sweetness. On time, peaches in vanilla.
Palate
Smooth and sweet with a sherbet feel at mid palate. Seaweeds, smoke, pickled lemons (lemons in salt).
Finish
Dry, peppery with a lovely delicate blancmange aftertaste.
Comment
A beautifully balanced islander. The marine aromatic display is just enticing, constantly teasing the malty sweet heart.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Seashore, mineral, salt washed stones. Damps seaweed and driftwood. Classic marine notes of smoked fish, peated barley mixed with sweet vanilla custard.
Palate
The seaside ramble continues with smoked fish and seaweed, rollmop herrings. That sweet barley malt note is still here too.
Finish
A cracked black pepper bite then lush creaminess.
Comment
A lovely seaside experience in a bottle, well balanced and knitted together.
