COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Le chouchenn DRAGON est, comme le TARA, un chouchenn complexe et riche de sensations. Il est élaboré en assemblage après plusieurs années de maturation en fûts de bois de chène. La fermentation est lente, elle dure 4 à 5 mois et elle est réalisée directement en fûts de chène, contenant dans lequel il restera sur lies pendant de longs mois et années.
Cette fermentation lente permet d’élaborer un hydromel de garde, un hydromel qui conservera ses qualités gustatives pendant des années. Son gout, très reconnaissable par les amateurs, évoluera avec le temps et mais conservera la particularité du DRAGON.
Le chouchenn DRAGON est un produit multiple. Classiquement il se servira frais en apéritif, mais il sera aussi très agréable avec un fromage fort, de type bleu ou Roquefort. Certains l’aiment aussi avec le dessert ou en fin de repas.
Ce chouchenn peut aussi se consommer brûlant, chauffé en casserole et servi dans un verre à pied avec un filet de citron ! La puissance des parfums développés rend l’ajoût d’autres ingrédients inutiles.

Measured Final Gravity: 1019

Golden color. Deep aroma of honey, but also fruity, with seducing alcohol, and minimal woody notes. The mouthfeel is semi-sweet, with honey flavor, light oxidization, a hidden fruity vein; the final carries a mild astringency from the tannins. Very good.
