Tasting notes


Nose

It starts with a pastry profile on raisin, apricot, coconut and caramel and then evolves on rose, orange blossom, nutmeg and ginger. In short, a very fruity and spicy cake.


Palate

Fat and full, it follows the nose with a tad more oaky and peppery profile at first. Thereafter it evolves on baked pear, honey, Muscat grape, pineapple and cloves.


Finish

Very long and fresh with minty notes, also fruity notes of prune, mango, orange, licorice, vanilla and fresh tobacco.
