NOSE : both fresh and heady. Superb alternation of floral sequences (linden, tuberose, rose), fruity (plum, quince, mirabelle plum), vegetal (clover, bay leaf), spicy (cinnamon, ginger) or even chocolate and liquorice, the first nose is exceptionally complex and deep. . Allowed to breathe, bourbon vanilla, toasted walnuts and candied oranges enrich a nuanced and constantly changing aromatic palette.
Appearance : topaze
Palate : straight, firm. Roasted (coffee), floral (lily), fruity (gooseberry), spicy (star anise), powdery (cocoa) and herbaceous (pipe tobacco), the attack on the palate is particularly concentrated. In the mid-palate, notes of prune, gingerbread and raisined grapes provide even more consistency to the taste palette. Over time, grains of malted barley gradually come to the fore.
Overall : long, silky. Remarkably balanced, the start of the finish is refreshed by citrus fruits (mandarin, clementine, kumquat). Then, layer after layer, we discover vanilla pods, scents of succulent plants, essential oils (rosemary, savory), cocoa beans, spices (cumin, star anise), dates… In retro-olfaction, notes of cedar underline the quality of a perfectly integrated woodiness. The empty glass is heady (iris) and spicy (clove).
