Martine Nouet

Distinguished. Intense. Old library. Pot pourri. Dundee cake. Orange flan. Pepper. Fresh almond.
Smooth and silky. Dried apricot. Raisins in rum. Walnut and date biscuit.
Everlasting. Spicy. Ginger. Slowly vanishing on a luscious praline note.
Antique shop aromas. Oak and fruit locked in a sensual embrace.

Dave Broom

Understated and takes time to open. Almond skin, dried peels, honeycomb, light smoke, bruised apple, nut bowl, wax. Mature.
Lemon, lime, then marzipan, coconut, hay, nutmeg deepening into honey, cooked raspberry.
Anise/basil. Expansive and complex.
A classic example of the understated, elegant approach of the old Chivas blends.
