MARTELL VS 40%
Back to basics (5/5)
The youngest Martell on the market. Let’s go!
Colour: Gold with brown light. Medium irregular tears
Nose: Dry chestnut. Overripe apple. A little acidic. Cider apple. Acacia honey. Linseed oil.
Palate: Watery texture. Slight notes of apple crumble. A dash of white pepper and…nothing. As short as its age statement.
Last Notes: Cider apple. Caramelized nuts. Cardboard and cellulose. And…nothing.
My very subjective note: 71/100
With 1,5cl of tonic: Apple cake, vanilla stick. A little of pastry notes. Green lemon zest. A shy nose. Cider apple. Cardboard. A little too acidic. The palate is on the same level. It’s weak. I know, it’s a cognac VS. But comparing to the others, it’s clearly the less interesting.
Martell VS note (very subjective and just for fun) with 1,5cl of tonic (/100): 73/100
