Nutty, dry fruit pounding in the nose. Intense sherry rushes forward. Alcohol is also there. Immediately there is some sulfur in the background, just so that you perceive it and that it is a bit more interesting. Prunes with pepper. Blood orange, pastries and some leather. A spice is included, which is difficult to grasp at first. Some soy maybe. I perceive roast aromas. Roasted and already somewhat blackened almonds. Then suddenly it will be unexpectedly sweet - and how. Shortly I have trolli gummy bears in my nose. But they go back quickly. Hand warming lures out first some alcohol, but then it is sweeter again and cherry is added.
Water: The whisky is a bit tamer. Nut biscuits come through more clearly, a little cinnamon joins.
Tingling, the mouth is filled. Sherry. Cherry is at the forefront. There are also slightly nutty and spicy hints. Sweetness is there, but severe dryness soon takes over. Plums and orange peel mix with toasted aromas. Spicy oak is fighting through. In the Nachschmecken comes something easily Vergorenes, which I like very much. The bitterness begins.
Water: Sweeter and a little fresher, but also a little sharper (alcoholic). The 60 +% are better integrated.
Long, sweet at first, then gradually yielding to increasing bitterness. In the end it is more noble chocolate, 80% + cocoa content. The glass is coming to an end and the bitterness takes over everything. It sticks forever in the mouth.
