Tasting notes
Nose: A bit quiet and laid back at first. When it awakens it’s fruity and floral. There are fresh green apples and yellow pears and a hint of violets. The fruits are covered in a big dollop of vanilla cream. There’s a feint leather note sitting in the background. The fruitiness continuously moves forward. There’s a spicy black pepper touch to it on top of everything else.

Mouth: It takes a 180 degree turn and completely changes its character. It’s spicy with a hefty note of wet leather and it fills the mouth. The fruits turn darker and the apples are now baked together with some figs and raisins. The oakiness comes through after a while. A hint of dill is in there and maybe some oranges. It’s pretty astringent with a bitter tang.

Finish: Very oaky. The spices and the leather note is still the main feature. There’s a chalky note and a touch of dust on top of the oak. The fruity bits return down the line, but both the leather and the oak dominate the palate. There’s a marzipan note showing up near the end. It’s altogether a somewhat weird journey through the experience.
