The first impression is sweet and very spicy - dried fruit mix with raisins, cherries, dates, cranberry with nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, pepper, neat tobacco, old leather later, a fruity acidity of red wine or balsamic - the nose is round - without alcoholic sting - appears lush and delicately creamy syrupy sweet, flattering on the palate, very pleasing spreads spice - tobacco, a hint of cigarette ash, forest honey, subtly astringent tree sap, the texture is now even creamier, dark chocolate, rum raisins, nut flour, oak spice, mouth-filling roasted aromas, tobacco, light dryness, tannins with a touch of bitterness but still in the delicious range
