The nose is extremely complex with a wonderful musty and musty note. Gorgeous, I could only "mop up" this malt ;-). In terms of taste, the old blend fades a little bit, dominated almost only tart and dark aromas. In the end, I am fascinated by a rather rare waxy aroma, as well as the aftertaste remains present for a long time and warms the palate. A great blend, even if he makes me a little disappointed by this auspicious nose. But really just a little bit ...
Cloudy amber rests in the Premium Snifter, oily and tenacious "legs" stick to the glass wall. Cumbersome roasted flavors and slightly musty or rotten wood elements rise up. The initial muff and moder gradually turns into wet leather and sweet tobacco, minimally show dried berries and grapes. Sweetness and caramel rise, dark berry flavor can not decide between sweet PX and wooden Oloroso ... Candied fruit flavor plays with wooden seasoning, hazelnuts fall on dried orange slices and old peach wedges. Forest honey and damp forest soil appear, again shows musty wood and wet leather, plums and raisins are drizzled by caramelized sugar. Hints of nut chocolate and a minimal hint of sulfur follow, at the moment dominated again the wonderful musty and decayed wood note. Slowly my salivation is stimulated, I could smell forever on this interesting nose.
Herb and wooden, the first sip flows over the tongue. Gunpowder spreads throughout the mouth and massively stimulates the saliva, dark and spicy wood elements mix with old fruit flavors and burnt sugar. Again, wet leather and old tobacco, sweetness plays with slightly bitter wood tones, tart grapefruit juice drips from the tongue edge. Slightly resinous, wet forest soil and fir spines stand out, rasp of dark chocolate and a touch of cold espresso combine to create a tart mouthfeel. Old, slightly rancid hazelnuts appear, the wood tones become drier and tart. Do I taste a few drops of sour cherry juice?
Herb stick tart grapefruit aromas on the palate, the mouthfeel is characterized by candle wax. Again, I form a sour cherries to taste ... Long linger the dark and tart aromas on the palate, from time to time the salivation is stimulated again. A touch of pepper or sharpness sticks discreetly on the palate the whole time, minimal shows a touch of furniture polish on the tongue. The echo remains warm for a long time in the memory.
