    • Nose
      Definitely sweet with notes of prunes, sweet cherry, orange peel, fingernail polish, dried fruits, cherry in dark chocolate. Additionally, notes of sourness, cherry becomes stronger, it reminds of old sherry wood whisky from Japan. After a few minutes the fingernail polish becomes more chemical and stronger. A great promise!
    • Taste
      It starts sweet, smoothly with dominant old sherry notes. It´s dominated by dried fruits, old leather clothes, dark chocolate, some bitterness. After a while it becomes hot, warm with hints of chili, dryness, oak, chemical notes to it and more leather.
    • Finish
      Long, dry, filled with leather, dominated by dried fruits, old oak and hints of pepper.
