Dark brown with green reflections in the glass due to the long period of maturity in the barrel. Full sophisticated aromas of dried fruits such as figs and raisins, chocolate and hints of strong oxidation such as caramel, toffee and nuts. Delightfully sweet, hot alcohol and incredibly intense aromas in the mouth leading to an almost endless evolving aftertaste.
