Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense,rich.Refined. Antique shop. Waxed floor. Exotic wood.Cedar. Raisin and hazelnut. Cranberry juice. A touch of burnt wood. Dusty spices.
Palate: Smooth at start then releasing a full wave of spices and oak. And creamy fudge. Perfect balance.
Finish: Lingering on dried fruit and spices.
Comment: Another cracker from that great distillery. Just a splash of water and it takes you further and further.
