Nose: Lighter. Cool vanilla ice-cream with fudge and coconut flakes. Hints of fudge and cookie dough.
Taste: Medium body. On the dry side. Quite spicy upfront. Black pepper, ancho chili, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Finish: Medium long finish. Mainly dry oakiness, bitter-ish herbal notes and rosewater. Then, weirdly enough I detect chocolate milk. Cloves and caramel towards the end.
Comments: Another one that is a bit hard to pin down. The nose is appealing, the taste is a bit - hmm unfocused.
