    Great dram with a lot to discover. Second sip better than the first. Additional water damages the variety of flavors.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Black Forest ham, then sweet and fruity, plum, black currant, blackberry, grapes, wild strawberry, forest honey, a little liquorice, vanilla pudding and caramel, slightly reminiscent of menthol
    • Taste
      88 88
      smoky start, then a lot of fruit and sweetness, blackberry, plum, forest fruit jam, a little pepper; Softer and softer with water, more vanilla and shortbread, lighter fruits
    • Finish
      88 88
      long finish, dry smoke, tobacco, fruity like red berries, subtle oak with cocoa notes, nutty like almond, shortbread and toffee
