Nose: butter croissant and other types of sweet pastry. Brown sugar. It shows more fruit than other Americans (apple, banana). Some spices. Light leather. Vanilla cake. Hints of mint. Very smooth and appealing.
Mouth: starts very gentle, with the same buttered bread, caramel and menthol flavours. After that, the oak becomes more prominent with slightly bitter notes. Overall not as sweet as you would expect from the nose.
Finish: rather short but still very smooth.
This Bernheim Original does not show a lot of complexity but it’s dangerously smooth and drinkable. Only the slight bitterness in the end was a bit of an off-note for me.
