This one is quite different, starting on dried flowers, old cupboard, wax polish, old varnish, antiques shop… It really smells ‘old’ but not too old. Develops on something milky, with quite some vanilla crème, nutmeg and also bold notes of fresh truffles. Goes on with fresh mint leaves, lemon balm, verbena… Unusual and most enjoyable.
Again, lots of fruits mixed with white pepper, nutmeg and ginger. Bananas, coconut from the wood, strawberries, peaches, melon… Amazingly lively at such old age. Gets maybe a little cardboardy and drying (the wood again) but nothing excessive. Develops on more and more ripe bananas, very old rum…
Quite long, fruity and vanilled with a nice oaky structure that keep the whole on the tracks. Very good
