A very rich and complex sherry nose. Tobacco and leather meet a potpourri of dried fruits. It's definitely worth letting it breathe for a quarter of an hour at the beginning. First you have to put your nose into the glass, but later it would theoretically be enough to just point it in the direction of the glass. The alcohol is hardly noticeable. Pipe tobacco, vanilla, old leather, pickled plums, ginger candy, preserved cherries, dried apricots, marzipan soaked in Madeira, gingerbread spice, cocoa, gravy and a great oak seasoning.
Powerful on the palate but still makes a very creamy impression in the mouth.
Chocolate cake, vanilla crumbs, espresso, burnt caramel, tree bark, rotten wood, again the marzipan soaked in Madeira, dark chocolate, hazelnut cream, rum raisins, fresh and moist tobacco, leather and strong oak that hardly drifts into bitterness.
Long finish with vanilla, dark chocolate, burnt caramel, pickled cherries, hazelnut cream, and a very nice oaky spice that is slightly dry.
