Martine Nouet

Nose
Nutty, fresh and lively. A delicate touch of wild rose pops up before being submerged by liquorice and vanilla toffee. Quite tickling. Water releases more sweet toffee notes.
Palate
Smoother than expected at first then bursting out. Tangy mouthfeel. Not unpleasant though. Barley sugar. Gripping oak in the end.
Finish
Dry, oaky. Liquorice and nuts.
Comment
A warm character, just a little too assertive when it comes to oak but so uplifting.

Michael Jackson

Nose
Soft and warming. Ripe apples. Some pear notes. Hints at brownies with mango tartness balancing.
Palate
Sharp with slightly earthy background. Late solid cereals.
Finish
Firm, becomes creamy, with some hints of acetone and phenol(?).
Comment
Curious balance of firm earthiness and acidity.
