Nose : elegant, rich. Intensely fruity (plum, lichee, canary melon), vanilla and saffrony, the initial nose reveals impressive depth and concentration. It develops into deliciously honeyed (acacia), roasted (coffee) and slightly animal notes. Candied citrus fruit (lemon, kumquat) and fresh walnut wonderfully punctuate an aromatic palette that overflows with sensuality.
Appearance : old gold.
Palate : lively, dynamic. Strong spices (clove, nutmeg) give an alarming rhythm to the start of the palate which also closely reflects the malted barley. Next, liquorice stick accentuates the invigorating bitter-sweet character of the flavour palette. With lots of distinction, the mid-palate wavers between citrus fruit (orange, grapefruit), cocoa bean, wildflower (dandelion) and acacia honey.
Overall : long, smooth. The very rich and creamy finish evokes a vanilla and apricot tart. Notes of black fruit (grape, bramble) then enrich the already very luxuriant register. The mentholated retronasal olfaction releases the spicy and slightly earthy aromas of a Havana cigar. The empty glass is characterised by notes of gentian and coriander.
