Nose: very jammy and perfectly clean. Juicy raspberries, cassis juice, cherry jam and fresh plums. Orange liqueur. Hints of oak polish. Gentle hints of espresso and toasted oak. Toffee apple and light vanilla. Rather perfect.
Mouth: starts fruity but there’s a huge impression of vermouth after that, never had it like this before but it’s lovely. Think light winey notes mixed with orange peel, clove and cinnamon. Refreshing whiffs of menthol. Leathery touches and cocoa. Subtle roasted nuts and oak again.
Finish: long, on light charred notes, Oloroso and chocolate.
I feel sorry for not having bought more of it myself, it is downright delicious.
