Clear and pure amber shines in the glass. Numerous "legs" stick to the glass wall of my Premium Snifter and flow slowly towards the glass floor. The nose starts off slightly nutty with a sweet hint of fruit, dark yellow fruits dissolve from a hint of vanilla, apricots combine with bananas and a pinch of cinnamon. The alcohol is wonderfully incorporated, caramelized sugar and sticky toffee ensure wonderful sweetness.
The fragrance drips fruity tart with a fine caramelized sugar note on the tongue, followed by dried apricots and minimal abrasion of orange peel. Bananas mix with dry wood tones, dark fruit aromas warm through the palate while a minimally bitter and bitter base note spreads in the throat. Subtle sharpness tickles the tongue, a pinch of white pepper falls on dry wood, slightly resinous notes combine with a hint of licorice and minimal citrus fruit.
Tart and voluminous, dark fruit and wood aromas stick warm on the palate. The mouthfeel is tart, forest air and old walnuts leave the chubby, warm aftertaste for a long time on the palate, oily chewed walnuts swim under the tongue in the excited saliva.
