Martine Nouet

Nose
Rich, oaky. Resiny. Cedar. Honey. Antique shop. Cappuccino, tiramisu. Toasted hazelnuts in caramel.
Palate
Silky, very smooth. A refined creamy delicacy. Develops on drier oaky notes but keeps it round.
Finish
Long, reluctantly fading away on toffee and nutty notes.
Comment
An enticing expression of old age. Forever young! With elegance and style.

Dave Broom

Nose
Mature, complex and powerful. Cold tea, leather, overripe apple, fruit sugars. A lovely, mature mix of brioche, orange, dried peach, black banana, tea leaves, chocolate, almost rum and raisin.
Palate
Old but has sufficient spicy energy. Good depth of fruit, custard-like vanilla. Balanced oak.
Finish
Long sweet.
Comment
Subtle and mature. This is one of those drams you need to take hours over.
