    A real vanilla bomb in the nose later comes sherry acidity with woody finish but not too much no way bitter was filled for my taste at the peak of its maturity if you are looking for a vanilla bomb is the right one

    I like the nose quite well, creamy, vanilla with some spices. In the mouth he starts similarly, but unfortunately it gets too sour and bitter.

    • Nose
      Nez : Très gras, sur de la vanille crémeuse, du caramel, du miel, l'indication American Oak n'est pas usurpée. Malgré ses 21 ans il me semble qu'il possède encore des traces de malt sucré. C'est ensuite que vient du citron, sans l'acidité qui l'accompagne traditionnellement. J'imagine plutôt ce citron sous forme de confiseries de mon enfance, du genre qui te nique les dents comme dirait Renaud. Globalement bien fruité et gourmand.
    • Taste
      Bouche : Tout aussi grasse, avec toujours de ces notes fruitées, sucrées, sur les agrumes ici légèrement plus acidulées. Caramel mou tirant sur le chocolaté.
    • Finish
      Finale : Elle gagne lentement en amertume, sur des zestes de citron. Nous arrivons sur des végétaux, toujours orienté amertume sans que l'un vienne s'ajouter à l'autre et toucher l'horizon des événements de l'amer. Noix de cajou, un peu de poivre.

    On the nose I thought there is some sulphur but on the palate it is not that strong - the finish is then again more like the nose - okayish but not my preference
    • Nose
      Nutty, new leather couch, little citric, hints of vanilla, milk chocolate too
    • Taste
      Oily, citrus fruits, berries, apples, nuts, hints of butterscotch
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, zesty, more leather notes
