    Delicious young droplet! An extraordinary, very successful composition.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Smoked immediately after pouring, pleasantly sweet, alcoholic, but not disturbing. Then raspberries develop in the background, ripe strawberries in the background, accompanied by a stronger smokiness.

      Clear, intense fruit notes.

      With water, a cheesy note occurs for a short time.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Soft, tackle, despite the 60Vol%. In the taste again raspberries, rosé wine, sweetness, then a tingling on the tip of the tongue begins, it is peppery, smoky, but overall, but unexpectedly mild. He really does not need water.

      With water, fruits and smoke are even more pronounced, the pepperiness passes.

      Medium long, ashy, light oak and dryness, raspberry sweetness remains. A minimal alcoholic and peppery pungency is also in the mouth, overall like raspberry spirit.

    Exciting and delicious!
    • Nose
      Vinous smoke. Very tender. Incredibly cute. Raspberry. Strawberry. Sugar. And the subtle smoke. Delicious!
    • Taste
      Intensive and full. The smoke now more present. Sweet and tingling, the whole mouth is filled. The Nachschmecken is sweet and dry.
    • Finish
      Long. Warm. Ash.
