- from a purchased sample
Oh, this is something special. It's got that high-sherry nearly
extracted quality liqueur angle to it. Coffee, drops of cocoa, red
fruit, tobacco, the perfect small pinch of a few grains of salt (that
brings out the best in everything else). Really immaculate. I never want
to not nose this. (with water) I'm not sure that the water actually
made a difference. Perhaps the red fruit and tobacco are a little more
prominent, but who cares? This is incredible.
Everything on the nose, and more. Ginger/chili briefly, and then it
turns a bit more to the so perfect mix of coffee and high grade cuban
pipe tobacco. A touch of heat and wood, but it's actually perfect this
way. (with water) Fruit disperses a bit, and the palate goes through its
transition more quickly. More on the tobacco with coffee (both weak old
diner and the middle of a pour of Turkish coffee).
Really top notch. Perhaps one could fault it for being a bit linear,
but this thing has depth and it's gorgeous. More heavily on the tobacco,
wood, and coffee, but nothing's out of step. I'd like this pour to keep
