At first notes are between ether and wood, with a touch of vanilla and little coconut. Some hints of chocolate and toffee with a definite vanilla char sweetness. On the palate there is much more of the usual toffee vanilla sweetness, typical for the Red Snake. There is still the malty cereal note. For the strength this is surprisingly soft with very subtle tannins and a tingle around the gums. There is pleasant warmth in the cheeks with a sweet vanilla toffee aftertaste.
