    • Nose
      The characteristic smell of the side fortress :), a very bright smell of dried apricots, grain notes, a small layer of dust, raisins
    • Taste
      Nose extension, boiled and dried fruit sweetness, spicy, buttery, bourbon sweetness
    • Finish
      Very powerful and long lasting, the same dried fruit. Only after diluting with water, I felt smoke in the finish after 5 minutes.
