Aroma: Rich and Assertive – Dark cherries, redcurrants, dried orange peel, cacao nibs, toffee, dried apricots and a touch of cedar / cigar humidor

Palate: Layered and full, with subtle complexities – red fruits and citrus on the open, evolving into ruby red grapefruit, cherries, cranberries, dried goji berries, and spearmint with hints of dark cocoa, leather and subtle baking spice notes – clove and allspice at the close. Finishes dry, full, and evolves in the glass. Silky and slightly tannic mouthfeel, inviting for the next sip.
