Nase: fruchtig und leicht künstlich. Apfel und Bergamotte. Aber nicht so deutlich, eher stumpf. Und auch das künstliche hält sich zurück. Etwas angeschmorte Kabel oder Knetmasse. Gaumen: kaum noch Fruchtigkeit, kaum dreckig. Sehr verdünnt und kurz. Würzig ist er, Sternanis, Lakritz, viel Lakritz, etwas Nelke. Leicht salzig. Kurz im Abgang, hier ist Lakritz dominant, vielleicht noch etwas künstliches, aber insgesamt zu flach.
