Wow, that's good. You can understand the high ratings ...
In the nose, a fruity aroma that you don't often find - and that is the focus here.
First more spice in the taste, then more fruit.
Unfortunately, the aftertaste is relatively short, otherwise it would be an overwhelming malt.
[90 - 86 = extremely tasty -> get a second bottle, don't look at the prize]
Icing sugar, with fresh, yellow / light fruits of peach, apricot, pear, apple. Sweet honey, vanilla and caramel.
Green-yellow (not yet fully ripe, but also no longer green, just in transition to a ripe) banana.
A slight citrus note hovers over all of the fruit, in my case it turns into a fruit acid of kiwi and lime.
A (slightly) floral note comes with time and adds a nice complexity.
With this floral note, I could imagine that some would drift into a diesel note and associate it as "dirty". For me it always turns back into a floral note exactly at that point.
Far in the background you can still hear a spice of cinnamon and nutmeg.
First a gentle start, a light spice sets in and tannins shoot up on the tongue, it becomes drier and at the same time creamy and oily.
There is something lemony there, the fruits are also there, although the first sip is focused on the spice.
The whole gum is pulled dry - I haven't had it before.
Second sip: fruity, sweeter, creamy-viscous. Ginger sheep comes through briefly, but lies down again.
Light oak tones.
Third sip: fruity again, citrus note comes through well.
medium length, is getting drier. (Oak) tannins cover the tongue.
My whole mouth is dry ...
A light smoky note appears quite late (ashy-dry) - but more so subtle in the background; but becomes clearer over time.
