Color
Gin clear
Nose

Great sweetness, notes of sherry, cherry flavor biscuits, dark chocolate, toffee, plums in chocolate, candied fruits. Sweetness is everywhere and is very intensive. Additionally, some notes of spirit mixed with glue and fingernail polish.

Taste

It starts with freshness, citrus notes, candied red grapefruit peel in the aftertaste, hot spices, salt, dryness, hot sensation in palate and oregano. Additionally, some bitterness and peach peel.

Finish

Definitely long, hot, semidry and burning the palate.
