Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Resin. Pine cone. Oak. Forest fragrances. Malt flour. Touch of rancid butter in the back. Raisin buns.
Palate: Very round. Sweet. Brown sugar. Red and black fruit. Raspberry. Blackcurrant.
Finish: Gentle, minty.
Comment: Oak is better expressed on the palate than on the nose. Will please sweet tooth. Very drinkable but lacks the distinction of the older expressions.
