TITLE: The lady varnishes / 女性の爪のニス


Rhum agricole strikes first on this rather vivid nose before transitioning more towards a Spanish ‘Ron’ style with raw sugar cane and varnished wood. Over time it becomes deeper and more intensely honeyed. A spot of H2O suggests boat sealant, orange oils, hints of eucalyptus, wet cardboard, some pear brandy, pencil shavings and and old school desks. The palate is surprisingly waxy and thick. Rich and velvety with coconut, tobacco, old leather books and a lingering sense of pristine maturity. With just a little water there is an incredible freshness. Notes of apricot, fresh pineapple, coconut milk, granola, polished wood and a tobacco enriched finish.
