Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A big intense slow burning experience. Bonfires in the distance, but also like a fire in a wet forest.
Palate: Sweet burnt sugar with coal tar running through it. A butter and ash combination.
Finish: Sweetness then smoke.
Comment: This needs to be savoured outside or next to the fire.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Deep and complex. First, an intricate array of autumnal aromas. Bracken, wet earth, touch of moss.
Palate: Crisp, tight, sharp. With a rough texture like sanding paper. Sooty, very dry. The same aromatic mix as on the nose. Soothing on soft spices.
Finish: Dry. Soot also more sweetness.
Comment: The perfect image of the countryside in autumn on a wet chilly morning, with a mixture of fog and smoke hovering over the fields and the woods. Very suggestive.
