    Hm, not exactly a figment of complexity. It does not hurt, but that's about it. Acts very young.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    Okay, at the age of 24, I really would not have expected it. Also, I am irritated that he did not like me so much (78 points), I will try this a second time before I stop the notes.

    It's interesting how much a bad day can be when tasting. He may not be my darling darling, but on the second try that was a rock-solid outcome.
    • Nose

      After pouring initially still very restrained, only a bit of underlying sweetness, glue and some damp cellar can be found. Maybe a trace of citrus fruits. Even with a lot of life, the nose stays thin. Glue and fermented fruit, there is nothing more to be found here. Heat awakens him to life, at least as far as the intensity of the flavors is concerned, only alcohol is added.
      In a second attempt, he opened to me more readily, the flavors were basically the same, but much easier to access and integrated more beautiful. In addition, this time there were also marshmallows, relatively strong even, and very tender also an idea of ​​grilled meat.

      In the mouth shows a different picture. It pushes quite strong, pleasant caramel sauce with bananas goes hand in hand with a touch of grassy notes, but I do not find oak. The alcohol is a bit sprittig. In the second sip, a hint of licorice develops towards the back.
      In the second attempt he is no longer sprittig and the oak is a little more present. Due to the much more pleasant nose, it is considerably more balanced overall.

      The finish is short and unspectacular.
      Also in the second attempt, he is not spectacular, but much longer. He starts very sweet and then dries off, the sweetness never disappears completely. The residual heat effect is enormous. Also, the whole thing seems much more harmonious than last time.

    Blindtasting.

    Straightforward malt, very good drinkable and yummy - just so on the side or for deeper analysis ... the nose reminds me a bit of an older standard, gebottled in the 80 / 90s.
    • Nose
      Fine vanilla, some green apple and pear, peach, strong malt, for a short time clear alcohol. Superimposed by filigree oak wort.
    • Taste
      Short sharp on the tongue with plenty of pepper, then sweet fruits, forest honey, slightly oily, towards the end clearly dry oak chips
    • Finish
      Quite a long time; Honey and sweet fruits in the cheek pouch, then the oak notes on the palate win.
