    Unfortunately nice. From the nose to the very long-lasting finish, this is a harmonious experience. The different flavors and tastes are beautifully interwoven. I can hardly find a point of criticism here today. A really great moment of pleasure. If the glass were unfortunately not already empty, I would still smell and sniff ...
    • Nose

      At the first sniff, a rush of ripe orange and mandarin scents comes immediately towards you. Juicy fruits. Behind it, the oak tree easily wakes up with something like a subliminal smoke, but really only very, very subtle. The nose changes from minute to minute. Now I'm on a flower meadow with haggling. Honey is added. After some time in the glass, the fruit turns from orange to darker sherry aromas and the beautiful acidity of the juicy orange takes on a little salty character. As if the orange trees were standing directly on the pebble beach and the spray from the sea was slowly blowing past. I have rarely had such a calm, harmonious, creamy nose. Very cool.

      Creamy full mouthfeel. Immediately a great fruit in the mouth, there is also sweetness. The orange is there immediately, rather less sherry. Then you can quickly find a tasty aromatic spiciness that comes from the oak. Old leather and tobacco are now added to the mouth as a taste nuance. The longer the malt gets air, the more fruity it becomes in the mouth. The alcohol is very well integrated. The 46.3% are perfectly matched.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Very warm in the throat down to the stomach. The very nice aroma of the oak stays in the mouth for a long time. Something like light smoke also lingers. But absolutely no bitter note. No coffee or chocolate. Only oak and the tobacco note remain for a long time.
