Tasting Note~ Color: Burnished gold with salmon tinges. Nose:Refined, fairly lively. Proves to be particularly heady. Notes of cherry and pear eau-de-vie give it plenty of elegance on the initial nose. It then becomes sweeter and softly malted, with a whisper of vanilla. In fact, it never ceases to assert its strong character. Magnificent. Palate: Distinguished, clean. Young and lively, it showcases its pure, crystalclear distillate. Long and direct, it then makes way for red and dark fruit (raspberry, blueberry, blackberry). Its texture is tight, almost rocky (schist, slate). Increasingly dynamic, it unfolds persistent notes of freshly cut grass, peppermint and orange blossom. Finish: Long, taut. Its fruity register has a field day with Mirabelle and greengage plums, melon, candied orange and fresh figs. Nestled on a bed of moss, wild flowers offer a refreshing bath. The retro-olfaction and the empty glass present notes of mint and cocoa powder. Japanese enormously detail oriented stunning quality.
