Appearance : Colourless with glints of iris.
Nose : Precise, clean. Smooth expression with notes of coriander, juniper berries, cloves and toasted barley. It then develops lavender, gentian root and roasted fruit (pineapple, banana). Punctuated with a hint of rubber (tyres).
Palate : Unctuous, mellow. Very different from the nose, fresh fruit (pears, apples), orange flowers and vanilla are firmly defined. It becomes increasingly smooth and enriched with heady, liquoricey flavours of star anise and aniseed.
Overall : Soft, caressing. Nettles, ivy, mint and cypress express notes of chlorophyll. These are accompanied by juicy oranges. Lingers naturally with fir tree honey. The empty glass is spicy and very slightly smoky.
