Finish: Fruity,creamy vanilla followed by subtle smoke.
Comment: Various highlights reveal themselves, just like a great sight-seeing holiday.
8.6
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Asuperb combination of outdoor and indoor fragrances. Sun warmed pine cones with a touch of humus, wet sand and seashells. Candyfloss,grated lemon zest. Peaty and smoky.
Palate: In the same key. But less complex. Oak tends to stiffen the aromas. Dries on peat and spices.
Finish: Spicy,dry,smoky
Comment: A charming nose which is not fully delivered on the palate. But an excellent dram all together.
