General description

In der Nase süßer, warmer Rauch. Im Hintergrund leichte Kräuternoten und Früchte. Im Mund sehr weich und ölig mit leichten Sherry Noten und einer minimalen Salzigkeit. Der Abgang ist sehr mild und würzig und kaum aschig, wird aber immer fruchtiger mit Zartbitterschokolade im Hintergrund.
