A bouquet of sweet red berries greets you first, with notes of raspberry coulis and stewed strawberries with a hint of balsamic reduction. Vanilla fudge and nougat intertwine with fruit and nut chocolate, evolving into melon, pineapple, and toasted oak nuances over time.
The palate mirrors the jammy character of the nose, presenting ripe red fruits followed by tart apple and a burst of zesty citrus. The complexity deepens with fiery Jamaican ginger ale, anise, and oak spice. A unique metallic element, akin to pencil lead, adds an intriguing dimension.
The finish is relatively short but impactful, characterized by a profusion of tannins. It leaves a dry, woody, and boldly spicy aftertaste, lingering on the palate.
