Colour: vibrant gold.
Nose: rich, warm. On the initial nose, notes of toast appear alongside a rooty, herbaceous peat. This introduction is forged in hardened steel. At the same time, candied lemon, green liquorice, sleet and nutmeg add the finishing touches to this olfactory image depicting an extroverted personality. Notes of flint clearly bring to mind a great Riesling wine from Alsace.
Palate: clear, resolute. Going back over the entire aromatic palette, the attack is medicinal (aspirin, cough sweets). Also milky (coconut, almond), it is very smooth and well-balanced. The mid- palate flutters between the seaside and neighbouring pastures. Herbaceous and fermentary, it lingers with notes of straw and grist. The flavour palette creates a sensation of intense pleasure.
Finish: long, well-balanced. In harmony with the end of the palate, the start of the finish evokes a delicious porridge. Fresh mint and verbena then guide the tasting towards more herbaceous tones. Like a Pointilist painter using small brush strokes, the peat leaves its mark on the end of the palate. On the retro-nasal olfaction, zan liquorice sweets, acacia honey and dill arrive in a grand finale. The limpid empty glass returns to its roots, to a spirit with an extraordinary strength of character that is generous and fruity (Golden Delicious).
