    • Nose
      It starts with sweet blossom honey, followed by many ripe fruits, especially juicy lemons and honeydew melon, very ripe pears and mirabelles and sweet and tart quince. A full load of vanilla steers the whole direction compote. The beautiful Muscovado sugar, which is so typical of the dark A'bunadhs, I find here again, in conjunction with the ripe lemons, the salivary glands are driven to high performance.
      The bright straw-yellow color suggests lightness, but here everything is very voluminous, fat and oily. The wood is rather mild and restrained in the nose, appears in the form of beautiful roasted aromas, which are reminiscent of cocoa and espresso. The strong alcohol is very well integrated, it does not sting and appears slightly cooling in appearance.
    • Taste
      The tongue, flooded with anticipation, expects sweetness - and will not disappoint. Spicy wildflower honey with many herbs spreads oily and heavy in the whole mouth, everything again very full and aromatic, ripe mangos and papaya, coconut, ripe pineapple and walnuts make here a charming potpourri from the well-stocked fruit counter. The oak barrel is much more dominant here than in the nose. Strong spicy wood flavors prepare the sweet spectacle a quick and always drier end, tart dark chocolate takes over the helm. The alcohol is becoming increasingly warmer and brings the flavors even clearer to the fore - and especially the oak.
    • Finish
      Even in the medium-long finish, the oak wood plays between the honey-sweet fruits in the foreground and ensures a dry-bitter aftertaste with a little sweet anise.
