Nose: Vanilla, pepper and some subtle cocos. Soft and elegant molasses, with a firm alcoholic punch. After a few minites also nice citrus notes.
Taste: The fine molasses combines great with the light smoky touch. Some ashes and firm oak on the palate. Firm body, but less alcoholic than the nose indicates. Retro-olfactoric hints of ginger and curry.
Finish: Nicely balancing between sweet and a-oaky, with rather present cocoapowder. Long finish, slightly drying with again great oak. gets a bit grassy.
