Martine Nouet

Nose
?Earthy, fungal. With a sour fruit note. Granny smith. Pine needles. Damp wood. Vanilla slowly rises up. Shortbread. A floral note with water.
Palate
?Sweet at first then the oak grip plus the alcohol give a sherbety sensation on the tongue. Nearly numbing. Chestnut purée. More oak with water.
Finish
?Warm, dry, spicy.
Comment
?The alcohol is not well mastered. Difficult, as if you add water, you go too far on the oak side.

Rob Allanson

75
Nose
?That damp dunnage warehouse note, wood and alcohol. There is a resinous qualitly to this, thick pine almost camphor. Hints of Danish pasties with apricot jam.
Palate
?Bags of oak here, a tannic, drying edge. Almost meaty, tomato stalks. The alcohol needs taming with water to bring out some creamy vanilla sweetness.
Finish
?Rich and warming with a little nutty edge.
Comment
?Once you back the alcohol down with a little water this starts to reveal some hidden pleasures.
