To me this is an exercise very much along the lines of Radikon. Gold and muddy, it traps you with an idiosyncratic layer cake of aromas (dusty cellar, old wood, kerosene, musk). A very unique and “maniacal” effort.

Unbelievable nose of white and yellow fruit, honey, tobacco, watermelon, reminiscent of a sweet wine, but just not quite. The aroma will keep you busy all night, and then you can still drink it and enjoy that side of it as well. Brilliantly seductive!
