Where are estimates stored Advanced Roadmaps

We're using Advanced Roadmaps for our product planning using a top down estimation approach for the long term.

This means we start with adding rough estimates to the initiative, and break the estimation down into epics later in the process.

I'm trying to find these estimated, initiatives and epics, on the Jira issues, but there are no obvious place on the issue itself were these estimates are stored. Original Estimate would be the obvious one, but that seems to be the wrong idea.

Anyone that know where to on the Jira issue these estimates are stored?

I created a custom field on the initiative to hold the estimate at that level. I can then display that field in the Advanced Roadmap.  It seems a clunky way to handle it so I'm hoping someone else has a better idea.

@Lars Morten Nygaard The estimate field in Advanced Roadmaps is linked to the remaining estimate in a Jira issue rather than the Original Estimate field. You can find this under "Time tracking" on the issue details view.

We use Remaining Estimate so that when you plan future sprints and review progress on an issue you are looking at the work remaining / work completed. If we just used the Original Estimate field then you would constantly be planning for the original scope of work and not what is remaining.
