Nose : Elegant and complex. On the initial nose, a subtle hint of wood smoke accompanied by aromas of fresh fruit (passionfruit, apricot, mangos), honey and vanilla. When allowed to air, notes of leather, menthol and ashes emerge. Spectacular.
Palate : Robust and bold. On the palate, strong attacks of ripe stone fruits (mangos, peaches) with a balanced amount of oak. The faint smokiness enhances the overall complexity and depth, allowing creamy vanilla hints to linger on the palate. Fresh and fruity!
Finish : Long, extremely well balanced. Fruity, oaky (stave oak), musky, earthy, peaty yet clean. Floral (lavender, lilac), oily and definitely leaving an impression as huge as its flavors.
