Tasting notes

Lion's | 20-01-2013


Colour: gold.

Nose: quite extraordinary at first nosing, starting on a whole array of various honeys plus notes of old books and distinctive old bottle effect. Lots of nougat crème and pollen, vanilla pods, old sweet wine (Sauternes)… It’s also quite smoky (coal oven), with also various aromatic woods (sandalwood, thuja, cedar) and leather. Old Rolls-Royce? Goes on with turpentine and hints of fruity cheese (comté) as well as camphor, green Chartreuse and a little chlorine (nothing unpleasant). Very extravagant, and of course exceptional.

Mouth: hugely complex! The oak is here but it’s well mannered. We have all kinds of herbal and mint liqueurs (Dantziger Goldwasser spring to mind).
And Chartreuse indeed, tar liqueur (yes - had that only once in my life but you cannot forget it), liquorice, natural mastic sweets…

The whole is just superb, hugely balsamic and resinous, the finish being as long as expected, terpenic, leaving a fabulous aftertaste of fir honey. Exceptional and exciting.

93 points.
