Nose: Plenty of raisins and dates but also a fair hit of blackcurrants, crème de cassis and aceto balsamico. There’s some dark chocolate and burnt toast, as well as tinge of pine resin and fudge. Finally a touch of mocha. It’s extremely rich.
Taste: Cloying and extremely viscous, the palate has plenty of figs again, but also more mocha, some coffee grounds and cinnamon. It’s not overly sweet. Like previous editions, this too has a pronounced spicy element along the lines of black pepper corns and cloves. Finally a touch of menthol and dark chocolate.
Finish: Lingering notes of cappuccino, dark chocolate and vanilla pods.
