“good Versailles profile, but rather on the spicy side on the way with allspice, tobacco, oak. The (quite sparse) fruity notes go towards dried date and dried apple rings. Similar profile on the palate. In the finish toasty-dry”

“Really dark, spicy reduced Demerara essence! Extremely furry and astringent with many tannins and bitter substances, at the same time fresh after various essential oils as in the sauna or a massage. But for me personally definitely too bitter and intense after licorice but still extremely complex and full-bodied. Wicked stuff.”
