- Mouth: Caramel with oak, Sherry, Peppery, Smoky, roasted coffee beans
- Finish: Sherry, Wood, Caramel, Smoke, A bit tanins/bitter towards the end - not negative, celery sticks, drying
Comments: Wowie, this one isn't for the kids. Very complex, lots of things to discover - but nothing for 'beginners' so to say. A bottle goes for something north of 200€ nowadays
