This seven-year-old is quite something, and its flavor includes the spicy sweetness and bitter cocoa aromas typical of this distillery.
A great partner for a small Perfecto from the Oliva O series. In this combination, the creamy texture with notes of coffee initially calls to mind a vanilla cream slice, but later the distillery’s spicy sweet aromas become increasingly creamy.
From about half-way through the smoke the sweetness is transformed into bitter notes of cocoa. A slightly bitter version of Le Mumba.
