Wonderful notes of walnut with fruity notes and subtle salty tones first rise from the glass. Lighter aromas of chocolate with pickled cherries later come through; this is reminiscent of the well-known cherry confectionary.
On the tongue, there is an expressive spicy sweetness with discreet notes of sherry. The fruit in the nose develops into a combination of pear and caramelized sugar.
Combined with a Juan Lopez Seleccion No. 2, astonishing notes of orange peel and bergamot can be detected. With an Ashton VSG Belicoso one immediately thinks of cream caramel.
