Masterful and very quaffable Convalmore with a nose to die for. Wow!
Boy, what a creamy nose. It is all about beeswax and paraffin.
Underneath a whole range of yellow fruit. Oranges, apricots, peach, maybe even
some pineapple on syrup. Nuts. Turn that into praliné. Touch of leather. Crust
of freshly backed white bread, no kidding! But wait! It is not over yet. Humus
and wet leaves, green twigs and moss emerge as well. A walk in the forrest
after a heavy rain. Nice, very nice! Lastly there is a delicate smokiness. This
is a grand nose!
Wow, this does not need water, who would have though? Very creamy on the
palate with loads of honey, citrus, mango, lemon grass and a touch of oak. That
takes care of a smokiness that offers true character to this Convalmore.
Spices: pepper, salt and even a touch of curry.
In the long and spicy finish, I get a lot of liquorice, bitter oranges
