The nose offers scents of white pepper, citrus, and saddle leather; old oak, sautéed almonds, candied walnuts, old library, and distant oloroso Sherry. The palate entry is rich, nutty and oaky; the midpalate bursts with woody, sherried, honeyed, vanilla extract flavors. Finishes opulent, honeyed, and elegant. Fantastic.

Gloriously bright copper color; ideal purity. The first whiffs detect agile scents of white pepper, citrus, and saddle leather; following seven minutes of air contact the bouquet ratchets up the volume in the forms of old oak, sauteed almonds, candied walnuts, old library, and distant oloroso sherry. The palate entry is rich, nutty, oaky, and long; the midpalate bursts with woody, sherried, honeyed, vanilla extract flavors that keep multiplying and deepening. Finishes opulent, fathomless, honeyed, and elegant. Holy moly.

A beautifully balanced Martinique agricole vieux, with a sensual, silky, elegant charm and a golden hue evoking late-afternoon sunlight; butterscotch and almond predominate.
