Nose : rich, powerful. Behind a layer of varnish, the first nose reveals closely linked notes of cane sugar, camphor, ointment, dried apricot and bitter orange. Allowed to breathe, the aroma palette becomes chocolatey, vanilla, exotic (mango coulis) and floral (geranium, lavender). Gradually, heather honey fills every inch of the air.
Appearance : deep orangey copper.
Palate : refined, concentrated. The powdery attack (cocoa, ginger) wavers between heady florals (gillyflower, dahlia), sweet spices (cinnamon, ginger), warm cane sugar and exotic fruits (persimmon, guava). On the mid-palate, bourbon vanilla pods are infused in a delicious orange jam. Equipped with a pleasant bitterness, the end of the palate is chocolatey, liquoricey (zan liquorice sweets) and medicinal (cough sweet).
Overall : long, fleshy. At the start of the finish, aromatic plants (wicker, chervil) and heady florals (honeysuckle, broom) appear alongside flavours rooted in a mineral soil (ginseng, gentian). The mouthwatering end of the finish is liquoricey, slightly burnt (soot) and above all fruity (ripe orange). The retro-nasal olfaction is nourished by praline, toffee and cane sugar. The empty glass is roasted (coffee), apricoty and herbaceous (spearmint, oregano, sage).
