Yellow gold.


Rich and complex.
Subtle notes of toast, dry peat and twigs highlight the distinguished character of the first nose. Allowed to breathe, the peat becomes more intense, almost meatier while simultaneously taking on a light veil of smoke. In the climax, exotic fruit and fresh fig bring lots of breadth and energy to the palette of aromas.


Distinguished and dynamic.
The attack is just as exotic, while also revealing both honeyed and floral notes. As for the peat, it finesses itself into every nook and cranny. Covered in a fine layer of ash, the mid-palate is deeply rooty allowing the expression of a refreshing minerality.


Long and well-balanced.
At the start of the finish, a chocolate, vanilla and spicy peat takes centre-stage. Tangy flavours of ripe fruit slowly spread across the taste buds. The empty glass precisely replicates the aromas of cigar, wildflowers and black liquorice.
