Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Herbal. Lemon balm. Humus. Wet leaves. Vanilla rises, custard and trifle aromas. Sea spray. Beautiful.
Palate: Sweet and lively. Then bursting out on liquorice and spices. Nutmeg. Hint of cinnamon. Distant smoke.
Finish: Lingering, dry. Nutty. Cinnamon.
Comment: Rich and luscious. Needs a dash of water to cut spirit harshness. The marine influence is overwhelmed by wood but in a charming way.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Soft and creamy with perfumed smoke in the background. Tarry beaches, sandalwood. Danish oil. Wet rope. Marine. Balanced.
Palate: Thick, peach then a blast of peat, pepper, salt. Flows over the tongue. Tamed with water making it rounded and elegant. One to tease out.
Finish: The peat comes...and stays.
Comment: More subtle than the 18 but still feisty.
