Color : Bright gold
Nose : Fresh, subtle. On the first nose, the scents of a rooty peat take center stage. Minty and spicy (ginger, cinnamon), the aromatic palette evolves towards very attractive herbaceous (verbena, straw) and fruity (pear, mirabelle plum) registers. Gradually, candied lemons bring a lot of dynamism to this resplendent olfactory sequence of serenity.
Mouth : Lively, tense. On the attack, earthy, spicy (pepper, nutmeg) and slightly camphorated flavors immediately recall the first nose. Smoky, ashy, the mid-palate is also medicinal (tiger balm). Honeyed and vanilla, the end of the mouth reveals notes of almond and apricot kernel, underlining the empyreumatic character (Armenian paper) of the taste palette.
Finish : Rich, concentrated. At the start of the finish, blocks of dry peat soaked in mineral salts impose themselves with force. In continuity, notes of tobacco extend the tasting which ends with an aftertaste dominated by lush vegetation. Vanilla, fruity (grape, white) and spicy (star anise), the retro-nasal olfaction gradually becomes malty and ashy. The empty glass reveals notes of citrus (lemon, grapefruit) and porridge.
