Aromatic Profile: fragrance is of a rare complexity, from pear to banana, from corn to toffee, from vanilla to tobacco. The taste, instead, is very sweet and rich, nicely matching the cane juice, honey, coconuts, durmast, chocolate, smoke, coffee, dried banana. FInally, the aftertaste is long and dry, somehow smoked with fine woods scents, with tobacco, exotic fruits and dried fruits.
