    • Nose
      The aroma is intense, full of vanilla but also of coconut, banana, ripe fruit and marzipan
    • Taste
      On the palate, vanilla is mainly felt, but it is not as sweet and cloying as that of other more commercial bourbons, notes of almonds, marzipan, custard and a little nail polish
    • Finish
      Vanilla and marshmallows

    Nose: Nail and wood varnish, acetone, a little too much but it does not bother me at this stage. A lot of apple and some peelings of green pears, I imagine almost the grain. Palate: in the prolongation of the nose on the slightly cooked apple and the green pear with some rather artificial vanilla, some burnt wood ... Not unpleasant. The fairly well integrated alcohol just warms up the whole thing. Final: medium, slightly woody, peppery, with maybe a hint of ginger (confit?) ... Then the solvent takes over, persists solo and there is a little less pleasant ...
    In the glass once emptied the apple duo pear accompanied by scorched caramel and always a little of this varnish that seems to gradually fade ... So I wonder if you should drink it immediately poured into the glass or if you have to let it take (very) long air for acetone to go ...
