Nose

 Le miel coule à flots, chaud et onctueux, avec des écorces d'orange confites, des épices douces et quelques grains de vanille bourbon. Pas complexe, mais impeccable. A l'aération,  un peu d'anis enrobé de sucre en poudre ou plutôt, un de ces braedele  alsacien parfumé à l'anis. Et puis, de plus en plus Clynelish : une trame minérale digne d'un grand cru d'Alsace, des accents de cire chaude, quelques brins de poussière dans un rayon de soleil. Le nez est volumineux, ample et profond.

Taste

Épais, lourd, visqueux: c'est entre la crème et le miel. Imaginez plutôt une chantilly de haute volée (celle qui est à la fois si épaisse d'aspect et si légère en bouche) parfumée au miel. Ajoutez quelques épices douces, un soupçon d'orange amère, faites couler un peu de cire de cette bougie que vous venez d'allumer, laissez s'exprimer le bouquet de fleurs blanches que vous venez de disposer près de vous et: that's it! C'est onctueux comme c'est pas permis, ça se mange, ça se laisse fondre sur la langue, ou en dessous comme vous voulez. C'est voluptueux, c'est magique, c'est ineffable.

Finish

Malheureusement, il faut bien l'avaler! De la liqueur d'orange épicée avec beaucoup de miel. Le verre vide délivre des volutes d'encens et de fleurs. Vous vous sentez bien. Vous êtes dans un jardin fleuri, chez un apiculteur, en Alsace, à Chantilly, ou dans une église, ou dans tous ces lieux à la fois. Bon voyage!
