Nose: oh no, plenty of broth and Maggi cubes. Then burnt toffee, mushrooms, hints of pipe tobacco. Walnuts and toasted hazelnuts. A little cocoa powder and clove. Instead of settling down, it seems to get thinner over time, adding in hints of fresh wood shavings as well.
Mouth: very woody and leathery now, it’s really not well integrated. It starts on a peppery kick, quickly turning towards burnt caramel, molasses, some rubbery notes and cloves. Plum spirit. Quite harsh, with some dark chocolate in the end but also a slight bittersweet note, like an unappetizing cough syrup.
Finish: long, still on this bittersweet note, coffee and mushroomy notes. Even a chemical hint, boo.
