      Truck loads of dried fruits, prunes, plums, figs, lots of cooked oranges, chocolate, brown sugar, molasses, old wooden cabinet, tobacco, acacia honey, hints of sour cherry and balsamic vinegar, heavy sherry notes - superb!

    Dark fruit notes of juicy cherries, redcurrants, plums and popping grapefruit. Spicy fat with tobacco, leather, balsamic vinegar, very good oak, salt and black pepper. Subordinated to notes of old furniture and cardboard. The leading fruit components are also complemented by sweet aromas of caramel, honey, vanilla and roasted almonds - great!
    Spicy fat and absolutely fruity, but also "woody" at the same time. The enormous proportion of wood, however, goes hand in hand with the spice and the fruit. That fits! Waxy honeycombs, slightly tart fruity notes of currant, leather, liqueur and jam.
    Long - the delicious flavors fade away without significant differences, until finally only the dry-bitter wood remains - but exciting and well packed until the end.
