Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Floral, aromatic. Lilac, narcissus. Becomes creamier in time. Vanilla custard, dried apricot. Quite tantalizing.
Palate: Velvety texture. Lot of smoothness. Flows gently on the tongue. Fruity and creamy with a pleasant tickling spiciness.
Finish: Medium, warm but not burning.
Comment: A gentle dram. Soft and rich. Soothes your worries away.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Very creamy. In fact, it's cream buns with strawberry jam along with overripe banana and with water Caramac bars. In time, cigar box.
Palate: Tastes strangely dilute. Fresh fruit juices overlaid with cherry. Slightly tannic. Water brings out cocoa and cappuccino and then a nuttiness. Good depth.
Finish: Bourbon-like with a bit of a kick.
Comment: Well put together.
