    from a purchased sample
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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).
    • Finish
      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
      on going.
