A Friday afternoon had to believe in it for an extensive note. Spotify played the Kaffeehausmusik playlist. As recommended, the sailing seagull spent the night in the refrigerator and was now exposed to the atmosphere of my balcony in a large Bordeaux glass from the Zalto glass manufacturer DENK'ART with a suitable small opening.
At first there were still light notes of caramel from condensed milk, Turkish honey, shortbread and light notes of coffee in the nose. As time progressed and the product warmed up slightly, the aromas evolved into red tropical fruits, raisins with a light smoky note and bergamot notes. After about 20 minutes, the typical notes of seaweed, wet leather, red pepper and a little cold smoke from a campfire with sulfur came into their own. This metamorphosis of the smells was framed by the barrel-typical notes of the sherry, bourbon and rum barrels used.
Pleasant creaminess spreads in the mouth with the first sip. The just over 50% vol are very harmoniously integrated and present smoked, slightly salty beef jerky and again the beautiful aromas of red fruits such as raisins and now also tropical fruits. A fruit basket with ripe mangoes and dark berries and elder is spreading.
The phenolic smoke of a still warm, extinguished campfire from small branches and fine, slightly damp pipe tobacco lingers on the palate for a very long time. After a few minutes, a dryness spreads, presenting maritime notes of shellfish and dried fish.
