Martine Nouet

Nose
Restrained. Fruity. Apple and pear pie. Cider cellar. Vanilla slowly emerges, bringing out sweeter notes. Touch of floor polish.
Palate
Sweet and surprisingly watery at midpalate. Oak and fruit are well integrated though. Summer fruit. Vanilla biscuits. Dusty.
Finish
Dry, spicy, dusty.
Comment
Soft and smooth whisky which seems tired. Not particularly exciting.

Dave Broom

Nose
Smoke again, this time with briny notes and plain oak (almond, pine). There is also real weight behind this. Subtly perfumed mixing heavy flowers with soft/semi dried fruits and hints of cocoa.
Palate
An excellent spread of flavours: cooked apple, fresh apricot, toasted nuts, madeleines, tickle of smoke and a waxy depth.
Finish
Smoked vanilla pod.
Comment
Flawless, sweet, dry, deep, light, smoke, flowers, cream, toasty oak. Elegant.
