Brilliant amber robe with glints of copper.
Very pleasant nose of fruit compote, prune and walnut, with a slightly grassy note tempered by the spicy notes of cinnamon, vanilla and szechwan pepper.
On the palate-complex aromas of almond and fruit pit, citrus, pear and cinnamon, with notes of spice cake and tobacco, then violet, oregano and hyssop. A subtle base of bitterness underlies this rich bouquet.
Try using in the Mardi Gras "Vieux Carre Cocktail", a rye whiskey and cognac cocktail named after a hotel in the Old Quarter of New Orleans.
