Nose
Rounded. Soft fruit paste, some sweet wood, hot bracken and a note akin to cheesecake.
Palate
Sweet American oak - cream fudge. Rounded and soft with water.
Finish
Clean and short.
Comment
Perfectly OK, but a bit whisky by numbers.

Martine Nouet

78
Nose
Rich and buttery. Butterscotch. Greengage jam. Elegant grain note. Sweet, with a good integration of wood and oak. Some depth.
Palate
Round, appetising. Toffee, salted butter caramel. Hint of marzipan. Some fruit too. Oranges with a pinch of cinnamon.
Finish
Warm, creamy. Slightly nutty.
Comment
Appetising, pudding-like but not over-sweet. Well balanced. To enjoy with a Dundee cake.
