The nose is rich and very aromatic. There is a refined complexity lurking in the depths with notes of honeyed cigar leaf, oily walnut and dry wood. A little estery note develops, as does a Madeira character with stewed fruit and a jammy chewiness. A subtle bitumen note is present but very faint. The palate is sweet and rich. Mocchaccino and hazelnut spread with a little honeyed almond and aniseed. The finish is long and thick with beautiful sweetness. More aniseed is apparent with floral honey.
