An explosion of aromas hit the nose, spices, eau de cologne, bitter honey, cinnamon, barley spirit, crisp bread, soft molasses, almost rum-like in the background.
It is immediately sour and spicy at the tongue, with lemon juice, black pepper, wood spices, a lot of them, nutmeg in particular, again strong oak flavors in a second wave together with citrus and rum raisin.
The finish is medium in length, dominated by bitter citrus, pepper and a bit smoke (not peat). Finally, a peak of cocoa appears before its all gone.
