Warm and sweet again, full of spices and a bit dry caramel and coffee notes. Dried stone fruits like apricots, prunes and raisins. Also a bit of honey, vanilla and marmalade…
Find the dry aftertaste a bit too much combined with the strong raisin sweetness. Not a very long finish. Develops a bit in to vanilla pipe tobacco in the end.
