    My first thought on the nose was about sulphur - but it went away and on the palate it is totally convincing - complex and totally balanced - fantastic!
    • Nose
      Sherry wood, leathery notes, dark chocolate, spices, cloves, nutmeg, very light sweetness - not bad despite I usually don't like this leathery notes as it might indicate some sulphur - I think it's fading away after some breathing
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, a fruity sweetness (phew, no more leathery sulphur notes), chocolate, toffee, dried fruits, very good sherry wood - great
    • Finish
      Long and burning, more chocolate, spices
