Nose: yellow fruit, good to very well integrated alcohol, after 15min letting it breathe very harmonious. But it could also be more complex. Still, a smell that almost screams "drink me!" With time it becomes a bit more cereal, not necessarily malty, so a little bit. Guess a refill (re-refill) sherry cask. 88P.
Mouth: Undiluted, the first drop is like a little New Year's Eve rocket in the mouth! Pushes neatly and verifies the expectation that the crawl has let hope. Warming and a mix of wood barrel and caramel, the fruitiness is a bit drier and riper. A pleasant sweetness. I will mention, however, that I find the complexity a bit lacking here as well, the alcohol could be less biting and prickly, but in the (89P).
Finish: it's nice and slow fading and stays on the not-too-complex but straightforward side character-wise. It lingers a bit and disappears without leaving anything unpleasant. 88P
Conclusion/resolution: a refill hogshead. Initially I thought of a multi-fill sherry cask, but the Quercus Alba was too clear after all. Just over 100 euros.
On average, the 88 points are safe and deserved to him. Maybe a little less noticeable alcohol and the thing would be a blast (or three to 5 years longer in the barrel)
