Nose : Sour entry with green vegetal notes, granny Smith apples,lemongrass and citrus notes,hints of vanilla,Clove and star anise, as well as wine gums. I’m not overly fond of the profile, I must admit…
Palate : white pepper, vanilla and more anise, vegetal and hints of Crème de menthe, semi sweet wood, getting bitter, a musty feeling to it. More pepper
Finish : bitter call chocolate, wood, anise and rum soaked cherries,soft spices.
Nose: a fresh mix of sweet peaches and pears, bright lemon peel and a hint of white blossom. Rather scented and feminine perhaps. Minty notes, a little beeswax, hints of aniseed and leather. Very soft grassy touches. Reminds me of Albariño wine in a way. Mouth: similar sweet and sour mix. Fruit salad, fruit cake, with a hint of pepper. Slight varnishy / fragrant touches. Cereal notes, creamy vanilla, a little ginger. Still fresh, thanks to a whiff of menthol. Finish: quite long, still fruity and minty with a warm spicy glow.
A fruity, entertaining apéritif malt with an exceptional freshness and a light green side. A little expensive to be merely an apéritif though.
