Tasting notes: The first nose is finely spiced then evolves and takes on more floral and exotic notes, from chamomile to mango. There is a parade of aromatic impressions on the palate that follow each other with softness and tension. From citrus to spices reminiscent of lemon thyme, verbena and the sappy character of the juniper. The bitterness adds depth and then fades away with some herbaceous notes.
