Official Tasting Notes by Charles Maclean
Nose: A mild nose-feel in spite of its strength; nose drying overall. A big, rich, complex aroma, with a top-note which combines fresh and dried fruit (bruised apple, glace cherries, dried figs, dates), an initial scent of fragrant aromatherapy oils in the middle on a base of planed hardwood. A splash of water increases the last, introduces a trace of gingersnap biscuits and dries the aroma further. Some butterscotch in the development
Palate: A smooth texture and a lightly sweet taste, drying rapidly to a spicy finish, leaving a faint aftertaste of fondant. It benefits from reduction with water, but the profile remains similar, with the addition of a trace of matchbox strikes, and now the space combines Sichuan pepper with powdered ginger.
