Dave Broom

Overt oakiness - wood freshly treated with Danish oil. Then comes red fruits, rhubarb, almond and a light herbal note before paprika and a green vegetal note.
Intense and slightly nutty. Firm wood giving it a slight bittersweet edge. Just a little hint of treacle and then lots of spices like sumac.
That refreshing tartness continues as the red fruits return.
Just slightly too much wood for me.

Martine Nouet

Deep. Fruity with a definite note of new oak. Sappy. Plums cooked in a vanilla syrup. Hint of new leather. Slowly opening on pastry notes. Vanilla custard. Getting creamier on time. With water, a citrus note.
Sweet and velvety. Oak has taken the lead. Some dried fruit. Sultanas. Stewed peaches. Lots of spices.
Dry, gingery.
Same distillery, same strength but a totally different profile. The French oak has relooked it. A bit too much for me.
