This nose is an almost perfect mix of ripe fruits (of all kinds), honeys, sugars with spicy, nutty and shy peaty aromas that create a delicious and impressive experience. The palate, is truly multi-layered starting with all these tasty ripe fruits that are contained within a firm and very appropriate wooden structure. The spices kick in to create a delicious fruit salad that later is topped with honey and fine smoked herbs ("peated basil" and more). The finish is long and turns more bitter-spicy.
