Nose: The smell of apricot jam dominates from the beginning, in the background also something reminiscent of wood / fresh sawdust. The 48% are noticeable with a slight tingling sensation in the nose, with deep inhalation it stings easily in the nose; after some time in the air both jam and alcohol evaporate, everything is a little easier.
Mouth: spicy, slightly sharp (pepper) onset, this disappears quite quickly, then development to the effervescent powder with not unpleasant tingling on the tongue, in the background again some wood, creamy sweetness, the apricot jam is back
Finish: short and dry
Overall impression: interesting as much of Säntis, but the alcohol could be better integrated.
