Appearance : mahogany with glints of green.
Nose : What a battle between peat and sherry! Refined, complex. Each player has no end of arguments. The peat first is in turn icy, oily, medicinal, salty, iodine, camphoric, ashy, milky, lemony, spicy (saffron) and so on and so on. The sherry then reveals a stunning rancio that takes on chocolate, spicy (ginger, cinnamon), tangy (cherries in brandy), herbaceous (mint, lime blossom), fruity (orange, mandarin) and tertiary (date, fig, carob) tones.
Palate : Such harmony of peat and sherry! Lively, nuanced. After taking on the entire aromatic palette, the attack shines for its remarkably united tone. Cigar lovers will have a huge choice for selecting their favourite module. At the same time, close to the sea, lobster and smoked fish flavours further elevate the tasting. At the end of the palate, in a sparkling and enveloping crescendo, red fruit, rose petal and a rooty, chocolate peat rival each other in inspiration.
Overall : What serenity from both peat and sherry! Long, full-bodied. At the start of the finish, very elegant smoke rings cross the sky of the flavour palette as flavours of black tea, crumble and chocolate tart are placed delicately on the palate. On the retro-nasal olfaction, fruits (mango, persimmon, guava) add a touch of exoticism to an increasingly radiant universe. The mouthfeel reveals rare sensuality. The empty glass is a loyal reflection of the flavour and aroma palettes noble expression.
