Description

We walked through a cliffside lemon grove along the Amalfi coast with the sea breeze carrying aromas of sweet hay, cut green grass and shaved oak. On the palate, not surprisingly, lemon curd to start with followed by green peppercorns, white pepper, sweet ginger and sugared almonds. Diluted we detected herbal green notes of nettles, river reeds, eucalyptus and a distinct rustic scent of tobacco and hay flowers found in that mountain gentian spirit called eau-de-vie de gentiane, also known under the nickname, la fée jaune. To taste a mixture of earthy notes such as hyssop and myrtle with the sweetness of sugar and the sharpness of quinine like in herbal tonic water.
