Appearance : very pale gold.
Nose : refined, distinguished. The smoky, medicinal (ointment, camphor) and marine first nose is characterized by notes of seafood, smoked fish, pressed lemon and vanilla. Allowed to breathe, it becomes floral (white lilac, lily of the valley) and fruity (pear, white peach). Gradually, malting barley grains and coconut milk flow over the entire aromatic palette.
Palate : lively, delicate. The particularly herbaceous (rosemary, barley) attack is also salty and iodine (sea spray). On the mid-palate, flavours of incense, ash and almond milk appear alongside a handful of essential oils (savory, rosemary, sage). It lingers on very pleasant notes of vanilla and condensed milk. With time, gentian and spices (black pepper, nutmeg) transcend the very end of the palate.
Overall : long, fresh. The very milky (agave, coconut) start of the finish is aquatic (seaweed, samphire). Following the rhythm of the tides, it brings with its lots of seafood. The peat shows extraordinary finesse. With confidence, it staggers through the flavour palette while allowing full expression of exotic fruits (pineapple, banana), citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit) and white florals. On the retro-nasal olfaction, green liquorice covers the taste buds. The empty glass is nobly spicy (saffron, clove) and vegetal (artichoke heart).
