Nose: Soft sweet fruits, vanilla, dust, pleasant and rounded, feint smell of Apple juice.

Taste: Smooth, a bit dusty, some spices on the tip of the toungue, sweetness, dry oak.

Finish: Spices intensify, nice lasting dry oak flavour, hint of vanilla intertwined with the oak. A hint of apple comes and goes.
