Gloomy and dirty dark amber rests in the glass, while an oily streak has formed on the glass wall, dark, slightly decayed sherry aromas appear in the nose. Hazelnuts fall on wet leather and shatter into many small pieces, I smell musty vaulted cellar and lightly burnt peat. Dried grapes and berries dissolve from the musty base note, a strange spice mixture distributes its opulent bouquet. For the first time I consciously realize the flavor of lovage, I remember with horror Maggi-spiced soup at the camp. Muffy vaulted cellar and decayed wooden boxes dominate the nose at the moment, a subtle smoke is in the air, minimal shows a subtle note of sulfur. Wet leather and ground hazelnuts stand out again, chewy caramel and sweet toffee sparkle briefly. Dark oranges are suppressed by smoke and peat, here and there are citrus flavors.
Wow, first the Couvreur flows relatively thinly over the tongue, then suddenly the flavors express on the palate. Spices, dried berries, sour citrus fruits and spicy wood elements, dark chocolate stick to the palate, peppery pungency creeps over the tongue and spreads in the entire palate. After a few moments old walnuts and wet leaves stick between tongue and palate, slightly musty and musty fruit flavors mingle with smoke and leather. Here and there sweet fruit elements are flashing, nut chocolate melts in the mouth, the peppery pungency increases on the second sip and spreads a chubby and musty warmth on the palate. Grapefruit and lovage suddenly stick to the palate, slowly becoming creamy and spicy wood tones more dominant.
Walnuts, wet leaves and leather stick to the palate, citrus aromas and dark red berries blend into an unusual fruit mixture. The spicy wood tones become more intense, the musty vaulted cellar becomes less, walnuts swim in well spiced soup. Just before the end of the reverberation, leather, walnuts and a hint of tobacco are revealed again.
