Colour: gold. Nose: rather nervous and hot at first nosing, with quite some cold coffee, getting rather fragrant and toffeeish at the same time, with some hints of sherry, cooked strawberries and cigar box. Sandalwood, rosewater. Faint rubbery notes. Quite leathery at that, strong pipe tobacco, Chinese plum sauce… More complex than expected, with also some nice notes of toasted bread, wax polish… A not so fat sherry, it appears – I like it...
Mouth: very coffeeish again and very rubbery. Some sharp bitter notes but nothing excessive, Grand-Marnier, praline, orange marmalade, prunes in Armagnac. Gets a little tary and smoky, tobacco… Less complex than the nose and a bit ‘sticky’, but still very nice. Lots of burnt bread, strong tea and liquorice… The finish is medium long, on burnt notes and rubber-liquorice. Nice, although I do prefer the natural, less sherried Laddies.
