Tasting Note~ Color: Dark red amber. Nose : Pretty lovely, bag of dried fruits and marmalades, many raisins, various tobaccos and precious woods, touches of menthol and liquorice. Palate : Starts with marmalade on burnt cake, goes on with wheelbarrows of dried dates, keeps going on with notes of ruby Port, cherry liqueur and even Amarone, and gets then very raisiny. old oloroso ‘dulce’. The strength is perfect. Finish: Long, rather tobacco-ish now, that is to say a little drier. Some cherry-flavoured marzipan in the aftertaste.
