Nose : deep fragrance of cashew nut, cardamome and baked bamboo.
Liquor : amber gold, clear, its smooth body and developed tanins caress the palate and unveils a first fruity note of dried longan, followed by the sweet notes of mature bael.The finish is slightly spicy and long lasting in the mouth.
