Klassisches Hampden-Profil mit eleganter, öliger Schwere im Mund. Gefällt mir sehr gut, auch wenn den Früchten für meinen Geschmack ein klein wenig die Durchsetzungskraft fehlt. Davon abgesehen aber eine absolut überzeugende Abfüllung.

Le nez est, bien évidemment, sur les fruits tropicaux bien mûrs. On retrouve de la fraîcheur mentholée et des notes de boîte à confiserie. Et aussi des olives, de la colle et du cuir. Le nez est très attirant. En bouche, le côté funky s’efface assez vite pour laisser la place aux fruits exotiques bien mûrs. 19 ans de vieillissement lui ont conféré une rondeur agréable. C’est sacrément bien intégré et gourmands ! Et très complexe avec des notes plus subtiles de vanille et café. La finale est belle et plutôt longue sur le sucre brun, la pistache, le chocolat amer et quelques notes florales.
