Food Pairing Steak
Nose
Engaging, fresh and fruity. Freshly pressed fruit juice comes to mind, a cornucopia of white fruit, peach notes and juicy grapes. It progressivly opens up on the fine almondine pastry notes, frongipone and biscuits. Italian all the way, like a ponetone with raisins.The malted barley grows more present and plays off of the citrus aromas (clementine). A touch of oak and restic notes (verbena, comomille) bring it all together
Palate
Coffee, licorice, toasted oak, coffee grounds, a cigar slowly burning out. It's surprising range is expressive to soy the toast. Vigorous, assertive and uncompromising. The peat is elusive and finds ways to assert itself without so much as a whisper
Finis
Licorice candy all the way A refined bitterness quickly gives away to more integrated, medicanal aromas, comphor, eucalyptus. The finish eventually fades out on malted barley notes.
