rich and voluptuous. On the first nose, like lava flowing across the sides of a volcano, warm cane sugar gushes through the aromatic palette. It then takes on floral (white lilac, lily of the valley), fruity (lime, pear), milky (coconut) and vanilla tones. Allowed to breathe, it reveals an original expression of jasmine tea. Gradually, a film of medicinal plants (benzoin, Calendula, elderberry, lemon balm) coats the taste buds.
powerful, lively. Wavering between verbena, vanilla, candied lemon and a hint of gum arabica, the attack creates a solid block of flavours. The broad-shouldered mid-palate gradually becomes increasingly oily (olive, caster oil) and resinous (pine, rosemary). The end of the palate wonderfully showcases a mellow, fruity (raspberry) and aromatic (orange blossom) spirit.
long, generous. The intensely vanilla (flan) start of the finish is also mentholated, medicinal (marshmallow, St John’s wort) and vegetal (artichoke heart). With time, violet aromas fill the air. The vegetal (coriander, lucerne) retro-nasal olfaction also reveals succulent notes of pistachio and fleur de sel. The camphoric and honeyed empty glass is the perfect springboard for discovering the world of mezcal (agave, earth, peat).
