OK this is serious stuff! Nice big well rounded nose on this one. Peach, fresh apples and some tropical fruit hints. No trace of the typical glue and even the vanilla is not that clearly present. It is there but in a subtle way. More like Vanilla honey or something. Minty note in the back as well.
Well this is more than fine! Chocolate, vanilla, Sweet lemonade syrup. I'm impressed. This is very rich, well matured and full bodied. At some moments it reminds me of a bonbon stuffed with some kind of nutty liquor. A very nice milky mouthfeel. This is seriously good stuff!
It does hold on to a high level of quality! There is a quick nice and very 'loud' sweet note I can't get my hands on. Can't come up with the name but it's delightful. The finish is sweet. Loads of vanilla here and some milk chocolate. There are definitely herbs here. The herbs keep hanging in there. Very very nice!
