TASTING NOTE Smell: Smooth, distinctive. You can actually smell the peanuts and corn. Then there are hints of curry, cardamom and a small touch of varnish which is particularly interesting and invigorating. It continues on to coffee and mocha. Taste: very different from the smell. It has more herbaceous and cereal freshness. The humidity it gives off clearly contrasts with the heat felt around the nose. The taste of fruit appears (apricot, almond). They may be dry, but they contribute to the feeling of calm which prevails. Finish: very different from the taste, it is remarkably spicy (clove, nutmeg). The vanilla from the new wood clearly emerges. This adds a lot of smoothness. The retrospective sense of smell wavers between notes of apricot and spices. The empty glass has a cereal smell.
