“This one was my favourite and it has a nice menthol touch to it from nose to finish. The nose is very nice and fruity with tobacco and menthol. I do pick up a light wooden note as well. The palate is lightly sweet and bitter with fruit and menthol. In the back i pick up oak, caramel, marzipan and tobacco. The finish is long and fruity with leather, oak and menthol.”

“Glue, solvent and olive are on top of everything whether on the nose or the palate. The past tropical fruits are well present. The alcohol is perfectly integrated and the length endless. An ester bomb!”
