    It tastes ... old. The smell reminds me of grandma's living room. The nose is complex, but ... thin. The taste is best developed with larger sips, but is not as varied as the smell. In the finish he is somehow ... schal.

      Fruity, sweet, light ... dusty, cherries, oranges, lemon, ginger, cinnamon, a floral note, peppermint
