Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intensely fragrant. Fruity and buttery. Stewed plums, custard, white pepper. Vanilla fudge. Mint chocolate. Very dessert-like.
Palate: Mellow, elegant. Fruit and oak interlaced.
Finish: Unexpected dryness with a bitter note.
Comment: The nose is rich and harmonious. The palate not so lavish, somewhat dulled by wood dominating. It would have shown better at a higher strength.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Rounded. Dried grasses, coconut, honeydew melon. Tree blossom (lime tree/linden). Slightly lean.
Palate: Touch of smoke, firm structure then a liquorous syrupy quality. Coconut again.
Finish: Sweet then dries into nut.
Comment: Another which picks up well on the palate.
7.5
