BOW (91)

Serge Valentin (90)

Colour: plain, deep gold.

Nose: double wow! This time it’s a little less fresh and clean, but much, much more complex. Flowers and fruits, for sure (see above) but also sea air, mocha, peppermint. Hints of eucalyptus and turpentine, freshly crushed hazelnuts, subtle sherry… The developments are simply endless. I’d better stop here or I’ll need bytes and bytes.

Mouth: bold attack, even if much more austere than expected. Smoke, burnt cake, black toffee, coffee liqueur. The alcohol gets even a little burning. Very creamy, though. It really coats your mouth. Lots of crystallised orange, chestnut honey, lemon marmalade. Understatedly fruity (melon, ripe apricot). Hints of camphor. In short, this one is extremely nice, and far less ‘commercial’ than expected.

The finish is very long, on orange syrup and honey. It comes in a nice black ‘pencil box’ but beware, don’t pass it to little children, as the brass shutter can pinch you quite severely. Well, that’s what happened to me, at least…
