Martine Nouet

80
Nose
Floral, aromatic. Lilac, narcissus. Becomes creamier in time. Vanilla custard, dried apricot. Quite tantalizing.
Palate
Velvety texture. Lot of smoothness. Flows gently on the tongue. Fruity and creamy with a pleasant tickling spiciness.
Finish
Medium, warm but not burning.
Comment
A gentle dram. Soft and rich. Soothes your worries away.

Dave Broom

Nose
Very creamy. In fact, it's cream buns with strawberry jam along with overripe banana and with water Caramac bars. In time, cigar box.
Palate
Tastes strangely dilute. Fresh fruit juices overlaid with cherry. Slightly tannic. Water brings out cocoa and cappuccino and then a nuttiness. Good depth.
Finish
Bourbon-like with a bit of a kick.
Comment
Well put together.
