« Recline on a woollen blanket on top of a bed of leaves as you forest bathe at sunset and breathe in the wonderful scent of earthy wild mushrooms, herbs and flowers dotted under the vast canopy of trees. »
Colour : Rich chestnut
Nose : Earthenware bowl of hot chocolate, woollen blankets fresh from the laundry line, recently turned warm soil in an allotment planted with marigolds and cabbages, plus ripe grapes, must and musk, hair pomade and beard oil, resin, and linseed oil rubbed into an oak refectory table.
Palate : It soaks up water which increases the spice and adds even more dark chocolate to the mix, including langues de chat, as well as langues de chat buttery biscuits, hyacinths, honeysuckle and honey.
Finish : The spices become drier on the finish, there's a hint of lemon, followed by crème caramel and burnt sugar topping a rich crème brûlée made with a dash of orange essence.
