Nose
Very light and slightly exposed. Malty/dusty flour sacks, felt. A little vegetal. With water, oaky.
Palate
Better than the rather plain nose with better integration. Lemon, flour again giving a slightly puffy quality. Hints of a floral border. Water picks it up a little more adding sweetness, but preserving clean acidity.
Finish
Delicate.
Comment
Once in the mouth things start to happen but a little too restrained.

Martine Nouet

77
Nose
Sweet, light. Citrussy. Lemon meringue pie. Fresh almonds.
Palate
Satin-like. Sweet. With the same citrussy profile as on the nose. Lemon posset. Creamy. Touch of aniseed. Drying on ginger notes.
Finish
Clean, short, with an almond aftertaste coming through.
Comment
A well knitted dram, fresh and straightforward. For a warm (if any ?) summer evening.
