Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Balsamic. Turpentine,thyme essence. Humus. The earthy note gives way to a sweeter one with toffee,orange custard and toasted almonds.
Palate: Very smooth and round,almost syrupy. Exotic fruit.Guava,lime, coconut milk.
Finish: Spicy. Powder ginger. Grippy oak. But clean.
Comment: A well-balanced dram. The age speaks but it has kept a vigorous freshness.
