    The aroma is slightly closed, sweetish. Vanilla - honey history, spices, industrial notes.
    They stood, breathed .... Light oily, tea with raspberries, herbaceousness, mint candies.
    The taste is sweetly peppery. Vanilla, honey, berry jam, wine notes, spices, pepper. The barrel is present in sufficient quantity, while in moderation.

    Finish - medium duration, sweet - peppery. Vanilla, spices, pepper, barrel.

    Conclusion: Sufficiently balanced, soft, at the same time scarce in derivatives, shades and midtones.
