Colour : Deep burnished gold
Nose : Delicate, refined. Very elongated, the first nose is a subtle blend of citrus (lemon, grapefruit), vanilla, wildflowers (dandelion, buttercup), ripe fruits (pear, apple) and spices (black pepper). On airing, the spices turn into chili peppers (Cayenne) while plums, pineapples and bananas complete the fruit basket of the first nose. Then, malted barley covers the aroma palette with resinous notes (pine, juniper). It is noteworthy that the whole is very cohesive.
Palate : Clean, lively. The same citrus as on the nose provide a lot of liveliness on the palate, while new fruits (peach, yellow melon) appear. In the middle of the palate, the malted barley represents a wonderful herbal transition. The aftertaste is slightly medicinal (balm), vanilla and floral (lily, iris). Over time, a magnificent chocolate bitterness highlights the mouthwatering characteristics of the taste palette.
Finish : long, full-bodied. In the beginning of the finish, noble spices (cinnamon, ginger, cumin) precede exotic flavors (persimmon, guava), honeyed (acacia) and herbal (straw, flax). Refreshing, the very end of the palate is menthol and in turn medicinal (tiger balm). Much later, coconut milk, vanilla and lavender honey bring a lot of sweetness to the aftertaste. The empty glass is both malty (barley porridge), powdery (rice), fruity (Williams pear) and slightly animal (bacon).
Profile : Elongated, fruity.
