Nose: Pungent and pungent with a lot of salty sherry, which is initially accompanied by underlying, gentle gum notes. Again tobacco, leather, orange peel, with even more smoky seasoning than its predecessor. With honey, butter, caramel, sweet liqueur (Grand Marnier) as well as almonds, nuts and oak.
Taste: Very salty and spicy starting, but also spicy and sweet at the same time. The heat is dominated by chili peppers, red pepper and cayenne pepper. The sweetness of caramel, orange, honey and sugar perfectly complements the dull tobacco and leather notes. Subordinate vanilla and herbal tea with a dash of honey and now in use, really delicious woody notes complete the taste. Class!
Finish: Long - with an optimal balance between sweet honey notes and the tart herb-wood combination. With vanilla, white chocolate, mus and a concomitant spice.
92 points (nose: 92 / taste: 92 / finish: 91)
