“Thinking about the price tag on this bottle you get a lot for your buck! The nose is fruity with roasted wood, sugarcane and vanilla and if you leave the empty glass you will also pick up a lovely chocolate note. The palate is also fruity with roasted wood, vanilla, chocolate and a hint of tobacco. The finish is medium long with wood, fruits, spices and a bit of tobacco.”
