      Great layers of (dried) fruits. Raisins, dates and sultanas complements perfectly with figs and plums. But there are more fruity notes. Some red sour fruits like cranberries with unripe cherries. Followed by a note of apple juice. Now I smell scents of balsamico and sherry. At the end darker notes like chocolate and a little hint of nutmeg.

      Way more roasty and darker notes than the nose. I immediately taste old oak complemented by lots of spices like nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon. Next roasty notes like black coffee, cocoa powder and dark chocolate. Lovely notes of old leather and old sherry. Sweeter now with notes of coffee liquor and thick syrup. There are also fruity notes saved for the end. Raisins, figs and dates.

      Medium-long. The old oak stays for some time with dark chocolate, coffee beans and cinnamon. Some raisins, dark cherries and syrup too.
