Appearance : yellow gold.
Palate : lively, booming. As on the first nose, the attack knocks over everything in its path.

On the mid-palate, candied lemon appears alongside porridge and yellow melon. This more peaceful sequence is nonetheless quickly thrown into disarray by an intense smoke and notes of turpentine.
Overall : long, heady. The start of the finish is saturated with smoke. Gradually, a still-oily but now also dewy peat takes the end of the palate to green (green malt, linen) and exotic (kiwi, lychee) lands. On the retro-nasal olfaction, zan liquorice sweets, clove and fresh coriander beautifully draw the tasting out. The very expressive empty glass is like a block of peat enveloped in intense smoke.
