Red grapes instantly, ripe Galia melon, cigar tobacco, plumbs and caramel syrup. Water and time get things more rounded. Nose gets more pleasant by the minute. After like an hour inside the glass more umami flavors start to rise.
The palate offers a smooth feeling upon arrival and after that it starts to kick in the alcoholic punch. A little water and time solve that ‘problem’. It gets really tasteful, offering all kinds of STR like flavors.
