Nose : intense, concentrated. Rye flexes its muscles to the maximum, displaying its power and prowess. It is surrounded by notes of precious wood and balsamic notes (eucalyptus, cedar). Heady florals gradually make an appearance (lily, concentrate of iris). Very open, it displays a generous fruitiness (orange, greengage plum).
Palate : rich, full of freshness. Notes of freshly-cut grass and coriander lay side-by-side with candied citrus fruits (lemon, bergamot orange). Noble spices (cardamom, nutmeg) set the pace on the mid-palate. Turning slightly salty, empyreumatic (lime tree, cedar) and exotic (guava, passion fruit). A very fine-grain texture.
Overall : gourmand and solid at the same time. The precious wood ensures continuity with the end-of-palate profile. The rye confidently asserts its rigour and restraint. Dark chocolate and citrus fruits (mandarin, grapefruit) lend it incredible elegance. The retronasal olfaction here is spicy (cinnamon) and the empty glass is liquorice-inspired and fruity (mirabelle plum).
