Martine Nouet

Nose
Fragrant. Creamy. Apricot flan. Vanilla syrup. Caramelised almonds. Gets sweeter and sweeter. Warm bakewell tart.
Palate
Rich and smooth. Clinging on the palate. Rich fruit (stewed apples seared in butter). Sylvestry flavours. Liquorice toffee. Fennel.
Finish
Dry with a slight astringency.
Comment
Tempting nose, the palate is somewhat tougher. A good example of classic bourbon maturation. Pleasant.

Michael Jackson

Nose
Tricky. Not unpleasant but tends to dryness. Packaging materials? Polystyrene cups?
Palate
Sweeter than the nose would suggest. A touch of maltiness.
Finish
Now drying. Warming. Ginger biscuits and cloves. Lemon grass? Thai herbs? Bok choi?
Comment
A difficult whisky to pin down. A tricky nose shouldn't distract from a pleasant enough palate.
