Wow, this is quite something... medium-full-bodied and of medium+ strength, with savory notes of wood and leather, and finishing long with notes of dry, peppery spices balanced by a little creaminess. Becomes sweeter and creamier past the midpoint. The last third then introduces some Angostura bitters-like notes.
Quite exquisitely balanced overall. Wish I had bought more.
Lasted me for about 90 minutes, and it was quite tasty at the nub too.
