Dark and sweet nose. Full with dried fruits, tobacco, honey and sultana. Dark sweet flower notes come to mind, combined with chocolate, prunes and salty ham. Almost reminds me of some thick BBQ marinade like flavours coming through. Beautiful, full and complex nose.
Pepper! Thats the first thing that fills it all. Then the softer notes of rich fruitcake, raisin, vanilla, bit creamy, sweet, chocolate and dried apricots hit your palate. A complex one indeed…
Tobacco notes, sweet, cinnamon, baking spices, speculaas, honey, dried fruits, stone fruits, and gummi bears…
Cinnamon and tobacco notes, bit dry, in the end. A medium length finish.
7,5 out of 10. Beautiful and bit complex dram…
