Martine Nouet

78
Nose
Intense. Floral and woody. Sandalwood. Fading rose. Sour fruit. Stewed rhubarb. Varnished wood.
Palate
Crisp. Astringent. Wood is dominating. Then a sweet note of marshmallow and crystallised violet. Some ginger.
Finish
Quite short. Dry.
Comment
Wood speaks up. In an elegant way though.

Rob Allanson

85
Nose
Parkin cake and dark treacle, cinnamon laced apple pie, warm pastry, a touch of tobacco leaves.
Palate
Fruity, juicy tropical fruits. There is also a slow build of spices. Fresh cut wood and pencil boxes come through.
Finish
Crisp and lush.
Comment
A great follow up and superb blending skills on show.
