    • Nose
      Red fruits, dense, black currants coated in sugar, soaked raisins, old oak barrel, leather upholstery, brandy/rum-like motifs. Overripe fleshy apricot, dried peaches and apricots, steamy dampness of a hothouse, tobacco leaves, greengrocery, aubergine and pumpkin stay aloof. I also got some light vanilla, muscatel grapes, cream sherry notes, quite viscid smell indeed, a little bourbony. Ah, soft fruit's much louder now, raisin, date and grilled bananas intervene lately.
    • Taste
      Grapey-sweet, medium-bodied, succulent palate, where bourbon and sherry components combine quite neatly. Prune, walnut, slightly briny, leathery, chew tobacco?, bitter orange, plus all sorts of berries: redcurrant, cowberry, bilberry, cranberry. Hot chocolate/cocoa, then getting a tad warmer, more piquant, with sweet cherries, mint, cloves, more brine, household soda?, salty prunes, dried orange zest. Refreshing cologne effect, tiny splashes of salt water.
    • Finish
      Becoming sour, quite acidic/lemony, crisp, slightly herbal (citronella, succory), rosehip?, dried apricot, then hints of cherrystone and polished wooden surface, tannins, bitter chocolate.
