“A TDL with a very caramelized nose. Then mentholated, woody. The nose is rather closed. On the palate, it's much more expressive: very present mint, fruit, tobacco. Dark and smoky. Reminds me very much of the TDL CDI selected by Caksus. Rather long finish. Very minty. A hint of dirtiness. It's a very particular profile that won't appeal to everyone. For me, it's a very good representative of this vintage's TDLs.”

“Un TDL exubérant et gouleyant à souhait dont on a qu’une envie, c’est d’y replonger. Le nez est particulièrement aromatique : menthol et violette donnent un air vivifiant, tandis que les fruits (pêche, cassis, mûre, abricot, fruits rouges) se font ample et juteux. Le chêne rôti, les épices et le caramel sont doux et chaleureux. Un nez très parfumé et gourmand. L’attaque en bouche est suave, délicate savoureuse. Malgré une potentielle réduction, les arômes sont bien présents : caoutchouc, notes florales et mentholées, myriade de fruits et boisé épicé forment un ensemble rond, esthétique et très gouleyant. L’alcool y est bien intégré, si bien qu’on serait tenté d’en reprendre comme du petit lait. On retrouve une finale longue, sensuelle mais pas dénuée de caractère, avec le tabac, le caoutchouc sale et le menthol, puis les épices, le côté fumé et les fruits qui reviennent en force. Un ensemble très rond et équilibré. Un Samaroli très solide, qui constituera un véritable régal pour les amateurs du genre.”

“Once again a very good and typical representative of the 2003 TDL vintage with the so concise mint note. Due to the slight reduction, this bottling is not so strenuously drinkable, rather an easy sipper.”
