AROMA WITHOUT WATER — sweet vanilla, honey, and cured meat aromas, hints of apricot and lemon combining with a beautiful subtle tobacco note. AROMA WITH WATER— the delicate smokiness complements lemon, honey and vanilla aromas with sweet hints of apricot and sugared almonds developing on the tongue.
TASTE WITHOUT WATER, there’s cracked pepper with sweet strawberry and orange flavours, a delicate hint of aniseed; combined with a lingering edge of bonfire embers. TASTE WITH WATER, slow cooked apple, pear and tangy grapefruit give way to a trace of cocoa powder and an absolutely gorgeous edge of lingering cigars.
