Nose: Rich, intense aromas. Concentrated iris top notes hint at the extreme intensity of the bouquet. Then aromas of malted barley, exotic fruit (banana), licorice and camphor enter the scene. Gradually barrel char and smoky notes settle on the aromatic palette. White flowers and beeswax appear much later.
Palate: Firm, lively. Lots of malted barley on the palate, enveloped in layers of herbal notes, licorice, spices (ginger, cinnamon) and chocolate. Very elegant and dynamic as it unfolds across the palate, with fresh tobacco leaves and coconut coming together in a natural symphony of aromas.
Finish:Long and smooth. Evokes the scent of dried rose petals. Delicate tannins balance the astringency (lemon, grapefruit). Lasting notes of tobacco, spices (cardamon, ginger), roasted nuts and stewed fruit (apple, damson plum). Exotic notes (lychee) emerge on the finish.
