Nose

Très expressif, sur un beau fruité vanillé, plein de fruits à chair blanche (poire, nectarine). Quelques épices piquantes (poivre blanc) ou plus douces (muscade) l'empêchent toutefois de sombrer dans le piège d'une suavité excessive. L'eau les fait ressortir davantage, faisant aussi apparaître d'agréables notes de pina colada.

Taste

Attaque douce et fraîche, fruitée et vanillée. Le milieu de bouche se fait bien plus chaud, avec un boisé s'exprimant sur les épices sans que les fruits ne soient submergés. Un peu d'exotisme aussi, avec quelques notes de noix de coco. Avec de l'eau?: si elle assagit le milieu de bouche, elle fait aussi ressortir l'amertume. La noix de coco se fait plus présente, tout comme le bois.

Finish

Longue, elle laisse comme souvent sur ces whiskies fruités percevoir une amertume végétale (fruits verts) absente de la bouche. Chocolat blanc à la noix de coco.

Comments

Un beau whisky, charmeur à défaut d'être très complexe. Je suis toutefois un peu déçu, il m'avait semblé bien meilleur lors du Witch.

"I can resist anything but temptation." O. Wilde
