Martine Nouet

Nose
Floral and malty. Ivy. Sweet cereals. Fresh paint. Cedar. Polished floors. A touch of marzipan. Apples in puff pastry. Buttery.
Palate
Fresh and minty. Quite chewy. Spices emerge but not excessively so. A splash of water brings out flavours.
Finish
Satisfying, warm and spicy.
Comment
A pleasant anytime dram. Very refreshing.

Dave Broom

Nose
Lifted. Apple wood, heather, baked soft fruits mixed with cereal, citrus and pear. In time there's notes of freshly-sawn wood, freesia and dried orange peel. Complex but light as well.
Palate
Light and fragrant. All the notes on the nose come through. Medium-bodied and gentle.
Finish
Dry and clean.
Comment
Right back on form. Is some more mature stock being blended in?
