Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Prickly,floral. Gillyflower. A cardboard note. Tangerine. Biscuity. Bourbon vanilla cream biscuits. The alcohol bite keeps the nose frisky.
Palate: Sweet,surprisingly sweet and smooth for such a high strength. Lots of vanilla. Butterscotch,a touch of salty caramel.
Finish: Dry,firm,fading on almondy notes.
Comment: A well tamed dram for its strength. Does not release a large array ofaromas but keeps a good balance.
