Martine Nouet

82
Nose
Sweet and gently phenolic. Coal smoke with a touch of soot rising up from the chimney on a wet day. Lemonade. A touch of cucumber. A pleasant refreshing mix.
Palate
Sweet, smooth. Velvety. The smoke is less present than on the palate. Lemon curd. Biscuity also.
Finish
Dry, lingering on soot and vanilla.
Comment
Not the big phenolic guy but a very refreshing islander. Smoke is well integrated and the aromatic display is elegant.

84
Nose
Gentle coal tar soap. Freshly cleaned fire grate. Buttered kippers and a hint of juicy fruits.
Palate
A ginger biscuit quality. Smoke has been over taken by those fruits.
Finish
Long with the smoke playing about.
Comment
Very drinkable and not the peat power house you would expect. A little cracker.
