    A 7 year old organic rye, made with the distiller's own grain fields at about 900m above sea levels between the Alpes and Vercors mountains. Twice distilled in 2012, aged in oak for 78 months from an undisclosed origin, and bottled at cask strength in May 2019.

    From the distillery :

    COLOUR : deep amber, crimson reflections.

    NOSE : The first fragrances are on salted butter caramel then going on pecan nuts and cloves. Second nose is more empyreumatic and animal, camphor, old waxy leather. It becomes more vinous, one can find notes of old grape marc, ending on a light sulphury side, a match cracking.

    MOUTH : The attack is very enveloping, fluid, and quickly leaves place to the intensity of pepper, cinnamon and a light tannic hook. It lingers in a gourmand way, on prune, kirsch, amaretto, tiramisu.

    FINALE : The mouth ends on almond paste and sweet liquorice candy. The last moments bring us back to earth, the origin of these aromas : liquorice stick. The empty glass abandon us on french toast, vermouth and resinous notes.
