Colour: pure yellow gold. Nose: very bold (yet delicate) but fresh attack, very flowery and quite smoky, soon to get also rather spicy. Lots of nutmeg, fresh ginger, cinnamon. Whiffs of dill and fresh parsley, wet moss, Chinese star anise… Some interesting notes of wet calcarious stone. Great balance! Mouth: bold and creamy, with again what appears to be a perfect balance. Lots of liquorice, though, and also some smoke and pepper. Clove, cooked zucchini flowers, strong chestnut honey, rubber, satay sauce, light toffee… The finish is bold and very ‘creamy’ and coating, mainly on liquorice. In short, an excellent one and at 12 years old, it’s got a superb complexity. Perfect. 92 points.
