- Extremely interesting combination, especially in the nose makes it fun to explore it. After he seemed very strong at first (day shape?), He lacked a bit of strength afterwards. The oiliness of the first sip, he has lost something. Nevertheless, a nice, different dram, you can take many first sips. ;-)
Notes from a blind tasting.
Immediately after pouring very fruity, berry, slightly less with some caramel and mint. After some time, red fruit juice with some licorice, something like this Haribo cuboid, liquorice in the middle and fruit top and bottom. Very attractive. Over time, spicy aromas develop, slowly gaining the upper hand. Especially with a little hand warmth, hints of menthol are added, as well as rich Cassis flavors, also ideas of marjoram and Liebstöckl. And again licorice cubes, this time with cocoa.
Hui, he is not even so weak ... Strong oily on the go, with spice right at the front, to dark honey and fruit notes. Liquorice and cocoa, dries back a bit, from licorice is mint. In the second sip he does not seem so strong, but the fruit notes are backward stronger, again dark berries.
In the finish goes the slight mint note and leaves a mixture of honey and cocoa the field. Overall, medium.
