    It lacks the little extra thing to go above, but very good.
    • Nose
      Nice nose on barley sugar, blood oranges and caramel. Milk sugar molasses. Mixture of leather, tobacco, very pleasant wood. Nice intensity without overdoing it.
    • Taste
      Very spicy mouth with pepper and nuts, oranges cooked in a cauldron. Cherries and raisins.
    • Finish
      Finish with the return of caramelized blood oranges from the nose. Tobacco and chocolate.
