Martine Nouet

Buttery but with a butyric edge. Herbal, aniseed. Shortbread. Dry hay.
Fresh, clean, sweet. Malty and minty.
Medium, some spices (paprika, ginger). A bit grippy. An earthy touch.
A decent dram, a little heavy on the palate though. You need to like oaky aftertaste to fully appreciate it.

Dave Broom

Light smoke? Salami, pulpy fruits, crisp oak, gentle malt, some resin, toasted.
Oxidised and fruity. Old pears, slightly chewy. Wood smoke from the middle. Slightly green, seems young.
Fruity then spiced.
Has some varied character. Good.
