(bottle No. 31775) Clear, dark bronze amber.
Orange zest, dried tropical fruit, linseed oil and woody vanillins.
Full-bodied palate starts slightly sweet with rich fruit (apricot and orange) and vanilla but quickly turns dry and more complex as tobacco and dry, slightly tannic oaky notes emerge.
Lingering interplay of dry oak and rich caramel with faint dried fruitiness.
