    Nice balance between fruits and spices. Really tasty.

      Fruity. Pear, peach, apricot. Spices and varnish too.

    pfiouuuuu, there is something to do with this one
    I recommend it warmly!
    • Nose
      mmmmhhh, taking a lot of smoke. Polishing, polish, precious wood, iron (smell of blood). I find sherry notes? (not specified on the label), leather, hay. The nose is complex, robust and robust. Moist wood, sawdust. A little gouache and a very light touch of peat
    • Taste
      explosive. Tincture of benzoin; cough syrup. Spices arrive en masse directly after the attack. We find quite quickly the elements present on the nose. The mouth follows, and that's saying something. It's complex and robust. Leather, smoke and the touch of peat. The development is strong malted, cereal. Gingerbread, bay leaf, clove, olive oil. Biscuit. The malt swims very well and becomes really greedy with the addition of water. It becomes rounder and gives way to a lot of vanilla, gentian (very pleasant bitterness), bitter orange, orange blossom, confectionery (quid with wine), lemon, lemon zest.
    • Finish
      pleasant, always a little bitterness and citrus. A sweet touch of licorice and the wood that closes the dram. Smoke. Sweety salty
