Heavier and rich sweetness on the nose. Fruit pudding and stewed red berries with a very subtle creamy sweetness.
A rush of milk chocolate brazil nuts followed by a very subtle hint of peat fire smoke in the middle that doesn’t hang around. Oily honey sweetness.
Longer in length. Woody, varnished oak and pepper-like finish.
