Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Perfumy.Liquorice,white pepper. On time,luscious sweet notes swirl up.Vanilla,pear drop. Quite complex and finely laced.
Palate: Silky.But firm.The palate is not as enticing as the nose. A pleasant fruitiness at start then a bitter oaky flavour.
Finish: Medium,slightly spiced.
Comment: The nose was promising but the palate did not deliver all. Water stressesthe bitterness.

Nose: Oil and peat,deep and resinous,dying embers,nutty,lemon detergent.
Palate: Soft and easy at first,then some spice and fruit push through.Grapey.
Finish: A small explosion of flavour,with a long pepper and peat tail.
Comment: The sweetness of the Madeira works quite well with the earthier notes of the malt.
