    Not the best of the hand filled but still amongst the best, very consistent in quality to the others

    A brute nose at the beginning, sweeter in the mouth and gums on the finish. Basically musty-heavy and therefore demanding, for me not for every day. Just too hard. But in a good way.
    • Nose
      Wow right after pouring just a bit scared. Very full and musty, musty, musty, heavy. Very challenging. After spending some time in the glass, he then opens and he becomes a little less brutal. But still a force. Many berries and heavy smoke, modern barrel. Very special.
    • Taste
      The palate then much sweeter, more fruity and not so heavy or moldy. Almost stuffy compared to the nose. Old leather. Milk chocolate.
    • Finish
      In the finish are light spices that fill the mouth. In addition, plenty of raisins, little pickled tomatoes and dark chocolate remain.

    Classic sherry, red berries and nutty.
    But not as good as the # 2488 from 2000. Unfortunately, without its wonderful chocolateiness.
    Clean barrel. Tasty and tasty, fun.
    • Nose
      Sherry, more red (Johannis) berries and nuttier with some engine oil. Finest dry smoke and very fine maritime undertones.
    • Taste
      Sweet, round, tasty. Nutty and feinrauchig and red berry in the mouth with a full volume. Fine peppery. Cocoa and some dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Sherry, nutty, some engine oil, red and black currants, cocoa, round. Good length
