Usually the eaux-de-vie are matured in oak barrels burnt very slightly. For this limited edition, the eaux-de-vie will finish their ageing in oak barrels intensely burnt. The action of burning the oak barrels from the inside to release aromas is called 'Bousinage'.
The nose, at first vivid and full-bodied, has candied-fruit notes (apple, apricot and bush peach) framed by honey and a hint of brioche. The fruit character then gives away to attractive aromas of almond and roasted nuts, accentuated by the intense heat finish.
On the palate, the attack is rounded and generous with candied flavors. Delicate vanilla notes together with a nicely intergrated touch of wood combined harmoniously with notes of candied fruit.
