NOSE: Fine, unctuous. Model of balance between fruits, malted barley, beeswax and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), the first nose shows a lot of presence. With gentleness, it evolves towards fruity and herbaceous lands (moss, lichen). This testifies to its great maturity. It extends on citrus fruits (orange, lemon).
MOUTH: Both lively and full of serenity. As a spine, dark chocolate gives it a remarkable salivating and greedy bitterness. On the one hand, malted barley has its roots in a soil just plowed, on the other, many fresh fruits (apple, mirabelle, queen-claude, pear) evoke the time of abundant harvests. It becomes honeyed and floral aeration (lilac, lily of the valley).
FINAL: Long, sweet. First of all, coconut milk and some red berries (strawberry, raspberry) spread all around the palate. In the back of the mouth, fruit syrups (pineapple, clementine) accentuate the very pleasant sensation of freshness that emanates from her. The retro-olfaction is marked by notes of tobacco and liquorice. The empty glass offers us to contemplate and breathe a bed of flowers.
