NOSE: The aroma comes on from a foot away with almonds and hard candy. Closer up it reveals the cigar box characteristics, with tobacco leaf and some cedar, as well as dried fruit, spice and nutmeg.
PALATE: In the mouth it reveals more spice-licorice, herbs, cinnamon-as well as a gritty sandstone character and meaty nuts. As hard as it is to do, by adding a touch of water you'll release Sherry and berries.
FINISH: While it doesn't last as long as it will take to convince your wife that it was a good investment, it makes a fair stab at it. In the after life, you'll find truffles, an earthy character and most of its smoke.
