Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty and oaky. Brown bread. Opening on fruit notes. Peaches in tin. Gingerbread. Cinnamon stick.
Palate: Sweet at first. Followed by a spicy outburst. Treacle, demerara sugar, vanilla syrup, ginger and cinnamon.
Finish: Dry and spicy. Warm.
Comment: A spicy character. The high strength is not easy to master. Water tones it down but it also takes some of the flavours off.
