Bright amber shines in the glass, on the glass wall of my Premium Snifter sticks an oily and tough streak. Slowly, small legs disappear and search their way back into the glass in slow motion, while subtle smoke unites with apples and velvety peaches on the first nosing. Caramelized sugar and malted cereal spread voluminously in the nose. Oranges and a hint of peat come up, meadow herbs and floral hints provide a fresh note, the alcohol is wonderfully harmoniously integrated. The grassy and floral note becomes more intense, shortly thereafter sweet and fresh fruit notes with a hint of smoke and maritime hints.
Shortly wooden elements flash, then smoky peat spreads on the palate, a discreetly sharp film envelops the tongue, the salivation is massively stimulated. Roasted cereal grains mix with dark wood tones and malty sweetness. Vanilla and burnt sugar are minimal, meadow herbs are whitewashed with dark walnut flavor, a few grains of salt roll over the tongue before wooden spiciness spreads over the tongue with a pinch of pepper. Herb and slightly burnt or peaty smoky, the taste is slowly in the finish.
Pleasant warmth floods the palate, tart, slightly smoky wood tones stick to the tongue, here and there are fresh mint and a muted herbal note. With this dark base note, the aftertaste gradually fades and leaves a tart and smoky mouthfeel.
