Martine Nouet

Nose
Herbal. Lemon balm. Humus. Wet leaves. Vanilla rises, custard and trifle aromas. Sea spray. Beautiful.
Palate
Sweet and lively. Then bursting out on liquorice and spices. Nutmeg. Hint of cinnamon. Distant smoke.
Finish
Lingering, dry. Nutty. Cinnamon.
Comment
Rich and luscious. Needs a dash of water to cut spirit harshness. The marine influence is overwhelmed by wood but in a charming way.

Dave Broom

Nose
Soft and creamy with perfumed smoke in the background. Tarry beaches, sandalwood. Danish oil. Wet rope. Marine. Balanced.
Palate
Thick, peach then a blast of peat, pepper, salt. Flows over the tongue. Tamed with water making it rounded and elegant. One to tease out.
Finish
The peat comes...and stays.
Comment
More subtle than the 18 but still feisty.
