- Sherry, rubber, oranges on the nose.
Full, dry, dried fruit on the palate.
Warm, long and spicy on the finish.
Not my cup of tea, but it devellops over time.

Very sweet, fruity, simple
Average lasting, sweet, fruity
- Aroma: sweet-sour, plum jam, caramel, black currant with sugar, very pleasant wood (old lacquered furniture, cigar humidor), vanilla, walnut, flavored tobacco and all this complements the malt-bread notes.
Taste: sweet-spicy, dark raisins, prunes, nuts, dark chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon, pleasant woody tannins.
Finish: rather lightweight (still it is only 43%), dried fruit, light spices: cinnamon, dried ginger, slightly oak tannins, slowly fading, of medium length.
Bottom line: reference made dvenashka! In fact, a molt feels at least 15 years old and this is probably the best that can be achieved from an almost minimal fortress. Everything is rich, harmonious and balanced, excellent barrels that give a sense of antique furniture.
I have not tried anything else from the F & F series, but this molt spurs to try.
Orange peel, old raisins, lightly bunch of wine cellars, leather. With water: caramel, overripe black currant.
Bitter chocolate with flavor of orange, sour cherry, cherry. With water: plums, white pepper.
Cocoa beans, tannins. With water woodiness.
