Engaging. Fresh and fruity. Freshly pressed fruit juice comes to mind, a cornucopia of white fruit, peach notes and juicy grapes. It progressively opens up on fine amandine pastry notes, frangipane and biscuits. Italian all the way, like a panetone with raisins. The malted barley grows more present and plays off of the citrus aromas (clementine). A touch of oak and rustic notes (verbena, camomille) bring it all together.
coffee, licorice, toasted oak, coffee grounds, a cigar slowly burning out ! Its surprising range is expressive to say the least, bordering on excessive. Vigorous, assertive and uncompromising. The peat is elusive and finds ways to assert itself without so much as a whisper.
Licorice candy all the way. A refined bitterness quickly gives way to more integrated, medicinal aromas: camphor, eucalyptus. The finish eventually fades out on malted barley notes.
