In the nose it was actually cake, and very nice tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, kiwi, brown sugar. Similar to sherry but drier. Pear compote, a little cinnamon. The alcohol is well integrated, soft, creamy, and looks older than 12 years. Vanilla sugar and french toast are also added. An excellent nose!
Less round in the mouth, almost a little flat? That's weird ... Oily, very dry, slightly salty. The whole sweetness is gone. Fruits also less, it is tart and more alcoholic. Cake is also less there. That's a bit disappointing after the great nose.
With a little water the nose stays the same, but the taste gets a little more volume. Tropical fruits and bitter oak, dry wine, a little vanilla. Still slightly stinging and alcoholic. The finish is short and peppery, tart and slightly bitter. Deified fruits, oily and salty.
Mixed painters who unfortunately cannot maintain the level of the nose.
N-91, T-85, F-84, a total of 87 points, which seems rather high when you look at the taste, but the nose was sharp.
