Nose: lively, powerful. Very original, the first nose is a mixture of black and wet peat, bacon, varnish, candied orange and dry apricot. When aired, grains of salt and pepper rise to the surface of the aromatic palette. As time goes by, the peat becomes more and more present. Then, a nice herbaceous sequence (cut hay, alfalfa), fruity (plum, walnut), honey (heather) and floral (tuberose, daisy) takes us to the mouth.
Palate: both lively and smooth. Faithful to the first nose, the attack on the palate is peaty and malty. The mid-palate is marked by notes of licorice, gentian roots, juicy melon and toffee. Gradually, spices (ginger, cinnamon) and milk chocolate accompany flavors of marmalade and rhubarb pie. The aftertaste is definitely malty.
Overall: long, balanced. Evoking at times a chartreuse, the start of the finish is empyreumatic (fir, cedar), autumnal (undergrowth, moss) and herbaceous (savory, sage, wicker). Then, a light and drier peat covers the taste buds. Gourmet, the retro-olfaction offers coffee éclairs to the tasting. Like the first nose, the empty glass is peaty, smoky, medicinal, camphorated, and glazed.
