Martine Nouet

Fragrant, fruity and floral. Medlar, raisins, stewed rhubarb. A hint of rose syrup. Opens up on bakery notes (ginger biscuits, apple and vanilla flan) and lingers on heady vanilla notes.
Smooth and soft. But mid palate is flat and watery. Then a pleasant spicy fit of energy.
Sweet, with a nutty tang. Touch of mint.
Quite an appetising nose but mid palate is faint and watery. Too quick a dilution?

Dave Broom

Lightly oily: nut oil, mutton fat, vanilla. Ripe and soft, lightly spiced, coconut, peach and malt. Medium-bodied.
Decent balance. Juicy soft fruits, toasty oak, malt flour. The palate has a kick to it adding interest. Good.
Dry, short, refreshing.
Well made. A good session drink. Have it with ice.
