    More greedy on the nose than on the palate. Once the 1/3 of the bottle passed, the bitterness is a little more marked. Makes me think of some Glenrothes in sherry refill but more complex, finer with a more "sexy" nose.
    • Nose
      Candied cherry, apple, cooked quetsche, sherry, lots of fruit, oak.
    • Taste
      First the wood with a slight bitterness, then honey and finally the cooked fruits (apple quetsche, sherry) which develop by integrating it. Very nice balance, beautiful complexity, very fine.
    • Finish
      On a little cream and wood, sherry, very long.
