Appearance : yellow gold.
Palate : elegant, well-rounded. The attack is a carbon copy of the nose, malty, fruity and vanilla.

The very subtle mid-palate brings soft chocolate (cocoa powder) and roasted (coffee, praline) notes. The very end of the palate is coated in a fine layer of salted butter caramel.
Overall : long, complex. At the start of the finish, cardamom seeds land on the taste buds, bringing a very dignified expression to the flavour palette. Then, refreshed by the candied lemon peel, the end of the finish becomes delicately honeyed (acacia), rich (vanilla) and mentholated. On the retro-nasal olfaction, grains of malted barley cover the sides of the palate. The empty glass is medicinal, slightly camphoric and herbaceous (lucerne).
