    Another bewitchingly sweet and fruity nose! Sugary and sticky, the nose calls for the first sip. The taste and aftertaste are dominated by grain and wood flavors. Here and there, sweet elements light up, the fresh mint aroma often lingers in the background, but it often comes to the fore and exudes its refreshing aroma. A sweet Grain, tastes great!
    • Nose
      Fruity sweet with a fine grain note, the North British rises from the glass. After the initial streaks, many small scattered droplets rest on the glass wall, they almost look like raindrops on the window ... ;-) Sweet sugar and subtle fruit flavors exude their lovely fragrance, creamy peach and a hint of vanilla dissolve, milk chocolate and light caramel melt together together. A few drops of alcohol add a touch of slightly caramelized sugar, the alcohol becomes a bit more sprightly and develops a subtle uhu note, seconds later the fruity sweetness dominates again and lets the alcohol quickly forget. Again milk chocolate and a touch of cocoa powder with a few crumbs show cinnamon powder, the sticky sweet sugar stimulates the salivation and invites to the first sip.
    • Taste
      Dark and strawy cereal notes mix with caramelized sugar and tart wood tones at the first sip. Slowly develops an ever-increasing sharpness, a pinch of black pepper heats the palate and wraps warming the tongue. Meadow herbs and slightly tart wood elements mix to a spicy and slightly dark melange. The harshness fades away slowly and strawy cereal flavors in combination with burnt sugar reappear. The second sip is powerful, spicy and slightly burnt again ... Dark woody aromas and rest on the tongue again before the peppery pungency begins again and the tongue neatly heated up. The sharpness fades away slowly, a fine minty note develops and lets the fading taste look fresh and wooden.
    • Finish
      Still, the chubby heat rests powerfully on the palate and flatters the tongue. Dark grain and woody aromas dominate the aftertaste for a long time and stick a felt eternity powerfully on the palate. Slowly, the dark and spicy tones fade out, again show cereal notes before the old mint sprays her refreshing aroma. The salivation is stimulated again and again, the different flavors rest for a long time on the palate. Mint, cereals and slightly tart flavors alternate every second.

    You can see the grain very well. ;-)
    • Nose
      Blind sample

      White wine

      A slightly woody sweetness greets me first. A little overripe pineapple. Neat vanilla. With green grapefruit. What this slight bitterness brings with it. Moist grain. With a little time in the glass, significantly more liquorice. Peach, candied orange and nutmeg. A little menthol cools the nose.

      The empty glass smells wonderfully of old, sedate sweetness.
    • Taste
      Strong, sweet, tea-like start. Immediately again the thought of grain. Chamomile, a little sage and lots of alcohol. Then becomes nice and peppery. I also find this distinct wood load in the taste. Towards softwood. Hazelnut and a pinch of salt. Bit of honey and pastries. Appears more sweetened and light-fruity.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Sweet and woody with an associated adhesive note.
