Martine Nouet

75
Nose
Malty and nutty with a precise oaky character. Toffee. Apples cooked in honey. A sap touch.
Palate
Round and sweet with a bitter oak note. A bit weak at midpalate. Oak revails. Drying on ground ginger.
Finish
Dry, a bit astringent with a sweet aftertaste. Dried apples.
Comment
A well structured dram but the oakiness is a bit too blatant for me.

Nose
Malt loaf and butter, warm red berry pie, wet oak, pencil boxes and baked apricot jam. A sweet resin note. Runny honey.
Palate
Big and sweet at first, then some tangy clover honey comes through. Oak provides some grip and a gentle bitter note.
Finish
A little like cloudy cider, with dusty spices.
Comment
Well put together and balanced.
