Martine Nouet

Nose
Sweet. Floral. Refreshing. Touch of acacia. Sawdust. Marshmallow. Quite slow to open up.
Palate
Smooth and creamy. Nutty. Almond. Raisins. Fudge.
Finish
Lingering. Dry, slightly astringent.
Comment
A well balanced dram. Rather shy and restrained at start but with time and a drop of water, becomes more attractive.

Dave Broom

Nose
Closed then wine gum, raspberry, briary fruits. Becomes big and generous with coffee, rum and raisin. Mature. Raisin and light smoke.
Palate
Grippy, tea-like start then Oloroso sweetness. Teasing smoke, perfumed (lavender bags) then dark dusty black fruits. Good weight.
Finish
Ripe. Coconut.
Comment
A big broad, spicy number typical of the house style.
