Take off your slippers, the open fire has nearly gone out but the embers are still glowing. Everything which needed to be said has already been said, so light up a cigar and let the day come slowly to an end. Big and powerful it almost takes your breath away as you savour your last one before bed. Water added toasted almonds, cinnamon rolls, ginger cake, chilli chocolate and Turkish coffee on the nose but still powerful on the palate with herbal, tangy and rich dry fruit cake. Yet right at the end there is the sweetness of the chocolate waiting on your pillow.
