Color : Deep gold
Nose : Subtle, pulpy. Sublime scents of malt barley and fireplace fire on the verge of extinguishing dominate a first nose that is otherwise gluttonous (vanilla), meaty and fruity (Reinette apple). When aerated, it becomes floral (daffodil, cornflower), mineral (slate), rustic and slightly medicinal. Some candied fruits (grapefruit, lemon) and acacia honey complete this aromatic table dominated by the yellow color.
Palate : lively, firm. Both fruity (mirabelle plum, pear), spicy and medicinal (balm), the attack on the palate is deeply herbaceous and malty. To such an extent that the mid-palate propels us in the middle of a green barley field. Very pleasantly salty, the very end of the palate is also delightfully liqueur-like (vanilla, pineapple, lavender honey) and spicy (cardamom).
Finish : Long, tonic. Vegetable (fresh mint), the beginning of the finish is also heady (iris concrete), mineral (clay, limestone) and vinous (black grape), highlighting the very beautiful influence of aging in a sherry barrel. In retro-olfaction, scents of verbena, lavender and black fruits (blueberry, blackberry) permeate the ambient atmosphere. The empty glass is undoubtedly malty, herbaceous and slightly meaty.
