Appearance : vibrant gold.
Nose : ethereal, delicate. On the initial nose, a pinch of salt is sprinkled over freshly cut barley and yellow lemons. Gradually it becomes peppery and fruity (apple, pear). Allowed to breathe, a thin layer of ash and ginger root covers the aromatic palette. This development reaches its climax with the arrival of medicinal notes (balm, mustard poultice). Each aroma nests perfectly amongst the others.
Palate : dense, lively. The very exotic (lychee, passion fruit) and fruity (raspberry, strawberry) attack is particularly original. It even shakes the taste buds, bringing us to the lands of white spirits (raspberry, blackcurrant, apricot, etc.). The mid-palate then returns to malted and lactic lands (coconut, almond, crème fraiche). With time, it reveals more and more sweet notes (cake, Panettone) whilst ensuring it never forgets the exotic fruit and red fruit from the attack.
Overall : long, generous. Delicately liquorice, the finish has lots of bite. Reproducing the originality of the palate, it reveals notes of clover, lucerne, sage and lemon balm. Then, abundant dried fruits (walnut, chestnut, date) bring lots of consistency. The retro-nasal olfaction is milky (barley porridge) and fruity (apple, pear). The empty glass wavers between malted barley, lychee, raspberry and spice (cinnamon).
