Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Woody. Fresh pine sawdust. Spirity with a faint cheesy note. Goat cheese in olive oil and thyme. Wet dog.
Palate: Sweet and oaky. Quite tangy. Chilli and the bitter taste of pepper.
Finish: Dry, bitter, warm.
Comment: Wood, wood, wood... And this cheesy note does not improve the aromatic profile. Water enhances the bitterness.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Peculiar. Damp horse blankets, wet wood, light smoke, slightly fungal.
Palate: Better than the nose with light grip. Sandalwood, old apples and tobacco, malt extract. Then it becomes light and fragrant before the darkness of the woods creeps back in.
Finish: Lit cigar.
Comment: It's a cad pursuing an innocent girl. The big bad wolf after little Red Riding Hood.
