    • Nose

      SMELL lush and complex, market in Spain with dark fruits such as raisins, dates, figs and juicy peaches. Then honey, vanilla and Christmas stollen with marzipan. Wonderfully sweet with Christmas cake and tobacco, but also light and fresh.
    • Taste
      94 94
      TASTE an oily texture releases the very complex and deep notes over time. Dried fruits with malt, cocoa, mint, leather, tobacco, fresh frangipani flowers, marzipan and creamy vanilla.
    • Finish
      94 94
      In the background almonds, cocoa FINISH long and lively very balanced and harmonious with dark fruity sherry and dried tea anise and pipe tobacco.
