Martine Nouet

Nose
Floral. Estery. Exotic fruit. Mango, pineapple. Echo of vetiver. Enticing bouquet.
Palate
Appetising, with a light sweetness which brings out briny phenolic puffs and delicate fruit. Quite a good control of alcohol given the strength. Spicy bite. Touch of cinnamon and ginger.
Finish
Long spicy feel. Smoky aftertaste.
Comment
Another outdoor drink combining estery elegancy and phenolic pungency. High strength must be monitored with water.

Dave Broom

Nose
That exotic caraway, vetiver and eucalypt aroma with a touch of incense and a little acetone. There's also autumn fruits and a light meatiness.
Palate
Highly fragrant and intense. Sandalwood, citrus oils, preserved lemon, fragrant herbs, light smoke. Powerfully aromatic, balanced and with real class.
Finish
Maraschino, herbs and smoke.
Comment
A real head opener which is slightly of the wall, but wonderfully likeable.
