Coppery golden amber with rose gold tints.

Wood smoke and leathery sandalwood. Water releases vanilla fudge, dark chocolate and plum pudding with nutmeg spice.

Smoky toasty dry oak with smoothing sweet vanilla balancing charcoal and black truffle. Delicate notes of plum/cherry.

Smoke continues to waft around the long vanilla, walnut and charcoal finish.
