Martine Nouet

Nose
Resin. Pine cone. Oak. Forest fragrances. Malt flour. Touch of rancid butter in the back. Raisin buns.
Palate
Very round. Sweet. Brown sugar. Red and black fruit. Raspberry. Blackcurrant.
Finish
Gentle, minty.
Comment
Oak is better expressed on the palate than on the nose. Will please sweet tooth. Very drinkable but lacks the distinction of the older expressions.

Dave Broom

Nose
Fleshy and ripe (crème brûlée, plum, blackbberry tart) then aromatic note of cedar/cigar ash. Dry and sweet in balance.
Palate
Sweet hay with a firm structure. Deep and long with an unctuous feel. Stewed fruits, sherry, black cherry, treacle tart, dark chocolate.
Finish
Dry, clean.
Comment
Richer than many and well balanced.
