    TASTING NOTE (LMDW): Color: pale gold. Nose: fine, lively. Cut hay covered with a thin layer of ashes, this is what evokes the first nose. Soon, however, it becomes more milky (barley porridge) and more smoky.The peat patiently waits its time.After the time comes, it arrives the arms loaded with white flowers and herbs (verbena, sage). note that it shows a lot of minerality (tuffeau) and a great distinction. Palate: ample, deep. Much more moist and liquorice, the peat precedes little exotic fruits (mango, passion). It opens with strong spices (black pepper, nutmeg) and candied citrus fruits (grapefruit, lemon), while the mid-palate is malted and smoked, while the same peat takes on chocolate and At the very end of the mouth, dried fruit (apricot, almond, walnut) highlight its mature character. Final: chiseled, delicate. With a lot of intelligence and confidence, peat notes prefer to play hide-and-seek with red fruits (raspberry, strawberry), heady flowers (carnation, peony) and tender spices (cinnamon, fresh ginger) rather than to impose at all costs. Intimately related, retro-olfaction and empty glass oscillate between peat, artichoke, vanilla-bourbon and wild bay leaves.
