EYE: Beautiful, brilliant topaz colour, with thick disk (glycerol). Glass generously lined with “tears”.

NOSE: Harmonious, without a strong alcohol attack. A fine, well-balanced nose. First comes a sensual, tropical bouquet with hints of fresh ginger, caramel and orange peel. Then comes a dazzling pallet of aromas: cedar, eucalyptus and tobacco leaves.

MOUTH: the tasted of the alcohol is at first surprisingly hot and spicy, but in fact, the mouth is superbly balanced and faithfully confirms the promises of the nose. There is a hint of pleasant bitterness, like candied grapefruit. There are also long powerful woody notes, with touches of vanilla, cedar resin, and sweet sugar cane.

PROOF: 64.8 % Vol. Cask-strength

GOES WELL WITH: roasted stuffed pig, offal, full-fat and creamy cheeses, and dark chocolate. Heavenly with a great cigar.

HISTORY: Chantal Comte called this marvel «La Tour de l’Or blanc» in honour of Seville, the starting point of Christopher Columbus’s journey to bring back treasures from the new world. On the banks of the Guadalquivir in Spain, a 13th century Almohad tower stands like a nostalgic sentinel, in the beautiful Andalusian light. It is a poetic and historical link to the far-off islands described by Saint-John Perse: “The first solitary islands, round islands ringed by infinite space like stars...The sea between the islands is lustfully round...»
