Very complex. There’s added layers of resins and tropical fruits (mangos, passion fruits). Other than that we have the same honeyness (plus fir honeydew), vanilla crème, quite some cinnamon, pollen. Superb smokiness (garden bonfire).
Attack of sherry. Rather flavourful, resinous (eucalyptus honey), with great notes of baklavas, plum pudding, vanilla fudge, toffee… Perfect balance (but the middle is slightly weak). Goes on with smoked tea, bananas flambéed, old rum, and high-end kirsch… Excellent!
Long and more satisfying than the 1991’s, jammy, with lots of nougat and orange salad seasoned with olive oil.s Rather impressive.
