Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Phenolic. Creosote. Smoky. Obviously coastly. Not much behind the smoke. A distant touch of vanilla maybe.
Palate: Sweet. Malty. Cereal bowl. Gets drier and smokier.
Finish: Smoky,dry,sooty
Comment: Judging by the colour (pale chardonnay),has obviously not gained from the cask. Has got all the phenolic spectrum but not much more,especially on the nose.
