Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Mellow. A lovely nuttiness. Candied chestnut. Fruity. Cider apple cooked in vanilla syrup.
Palate: Smooth. Velvety. Elegant balance between sweet and sour. Toasted cereal.
Finish: Whispering, soothing, nutty. Liquorice. Some dry oak on the sides.
Comment: I like its balance and elegance. Again in a cognac style like a mature X. O. from 'fins bois terroir'.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Quite light, moving into crumbling biscuit. Then leather, deck oil, hot fences in the summer sun. Touch of pear. Mature. Higher alcohol.
Palate: Very dry and quite tannic. Some sweet digestive biscuit. Hint of tobacco and dry nuts.
Finish: Tight, oaky, bitter almond.
Comment: All oak. Good oak, but oak nonetheless.
