    N- Hmm...am I trying too much of rum lately? I actually got the coats of Demerara dark aged rum and thick caramel on this. Despite the rising heats, shake it off gradually to open up the generous offering from a fine sherry cask, monk fruits, prunes, warm rich chocolate pudding, some salted butter, baked cherry tart with dust of pepper.P- Sweet and velvet liquid that melt on your palate with various dark dried fruits oozing out. Subtly sweet, brown sugar, sweet pickled ginger and dried prunes.

    F- Medium-long, whiff of sulphur-y match stick but were well muted by bitter chocolate,with more monk fruit, quite a bit of waxy, spices and herb warmness at the back. Finely dry and balance.
