Aroma: open, sweet, in the foreground light sherry derivatives - dark raisins, fortified wine, berry jam, currant leaf, then a lot of wood, dry sawdust, varnished table, smoldering board, brackish-mineral, mussels, sulphurous, slightly lime. Phenols and smokiness goes completely in the background, manifested by light burning, extinct coals.
Taste: bright attack of spices, a mixture of peppers, cinnamon, a lot of orange and tangerine peel, burnt paper, pleasant wood tannins, prunes, raisins, all this is well smoked and smoked, light mineral shades, activated charcoal.
Finish: medium length, brackish, mineral, smoked dried fruit, fading spiciness and spiciness, sensation of sticky berry jam, wood tannins, oily.
Bottom line: a wonderful incarnation of my beloved classic 10, only a little less smoke has come out, more woody and with sweet berry jam. For me, no worse and no better than 10 of them, slightly different, smoothed by sherry.
In the bottle that was ending, and before that the smoke was not very bright, the aroma smoothed out even more and the influence of the tree intensified, with taste there were no noticeable changes.
