    - very complex and substantial
    - originally worth around € 75 each!
    • Nose
      clear port wine note, smoke, spices, very intense and powerful
    • Taste
      powerful and complex body is confirmed in the taste, mix of spices, fruits, port, oak, light smoke above all; Despite 50% no alcoholic sharpness, incredibly intense taste
    • Finish
      long, pleasantly spicy finish;
      Smoke fades away slowly, very long aftertaste
