Martine Nouet

Nose
Mellow. A lovely nuttiness. Candied chestnut. Fruity. Cider apple cooked in vanilla syrup.
Palate
Smooth. Velvety. Elegant balance between sweet and sour. Toasted cereal.
Finish
Whispering, soothing, nutty. Liquorice. Some dry oak on the sides.
Comment
I like its balance and elegance. Again in a cognac style like a mature X. O. from 'fins bois terroir'.

Dave Broom

Nose
Quite light, moving into crumbling biscuit. Then leather, deck oil, hot fences in the summer sun. Touch of pear. Mature. Higher alcohol.
Palate
Very dry and quite tannic. Some sweet digestive biscuit. Hint of tobacco and dry nuts.
Finish
Tight, oaky, bitter almond.
Comment
All oak. Good oak, but oak nonetheless.
