Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich, bold. Beeswax, antique shop. Old leather. Chestnut purée.
Palate: Round, sweet, velvety. A beautiful development on fruit and wood. So well integrated. All spice, cinnamon, candied ginger. Dried raisins.
Finish: Dry, warm, spicy.
Comment: A rich and comforting character. Complex but not complicated. To warm you up on a dull evening. Play Beethoven Symphony No.7 (second movement) and you'll be in heaven.
8.8
Taster   Ian Wisniewski
Nose: Mellow, rich dried fruit, spicy oak with a burst of fresh citrus zest mid-way, and opening up further with apricot jam, cocoa powder and vanilla.
Palate: Creamy vanilla, chocolate, fruit trifle sweetness, with more fruit opening up: orange marmalade, apricot jam then some chocolate, nutmeg and cappuccino notes.
Finish: Citrus, vanilla, butterscotch, dry spicy oak.
Comment: Like a platter of various desserts, why choose one when you can have them all.
