Tasting notes


It starts on caramel, ripe figs both the fruit and the leaf, licorice and molasses. It becomes fruitier with banana, almond and notes that are woody, buttery, minty and smoky.


Rich and quite woody, it lingers in the nose with notes of cooked apple, lemon, mango and walnut, at the same time it is spicier with hints of white pepper, vanilla and nutmeg.
