Old mahogany to ebony in colour, very bright, intense on the nose with a hint of raisins, grape, plum and vanilla. Hints of antique furniture varnish characteristic of long years of ageing. Complex and majestic on the palate, at the same time both oily and velvety with an intense lingering aftertaste.
