My tasting notes
Nose: Mild spices and hints of dust. With time tons of vanilla sweetness - almost overwhelmingly so. Red berries, tropical fruits and mild spices. Earthy vanilla as well. With time also notes of tobacco and leather.
Taste: Medium body. Massively sweet - it is a light and vanilla heavy sweetness. Mild tropical fruits. Fruity hard candy covered in icing sugar.White pepper and dry peanut shells.
Finish: Medium long finish. The same sweet fruitiness all the way. Mildly oaky now - hints of tannins. Bitter oranges.
Comment: Enjoyable if you have a sweet tooth.
