Martine Nouet

Nose
Fresh pear, then richer notes quickly develop. Custard, apricot, touch of hazelnut. Hint of pine. Delicate smokiness in the back. Caramel with water.
Palate
Sweet and flowing. Well balanced. Nutty. Drying on light oak.
Finish
Medium, firm but retains sweetness. Ginger.
Comment
Easy-going, well-balanced. To be enjoyed as a refreshment with water and ice.

Dave Broom

Nose
Clean and soft. Green grass, light vanilla, soft grain. With water, some red fruit. Fresh.
Palate
Barley sugar. Lightly chewy and soft with some toffee and caramel notes. Good structure.
Finish
Dry, quite short. Refreshing.
Comment
A well balanced session drink.
