Floral and fruity
The packaging is beautiful, and big for a 55 gram bar, double wrapped in delicate paper and glued on the bottom of the box. Very rich with honey, tobacco, flowers. Smooth texture notes come first and then morph into sweet raisin notes. The bar has a gentle acidity and slight astringency which does not bother me at all.
