Nose
Sweet and ripe reminiscent of a glucose drink. Added fresh spiciness.
Palate
More of a palate whisky with juicy depth and fragrant hints of cumin and coriander. It does, sadly seem to lack a little backbone.
Finish
Sweet spiciness.
Comment
Another which collapses with water.

Martine Nouet

Nose
Light, creamy. Young oak. A touch of chicken broth. Some sweeter notes.
Palate
Round and sweet. Caramel custard. Not much more. A hint of ginger.
Finish
Short, minty. A bitter touch.
Comment
Correct but not a very palatable profile.
