Notes from a blind online chat tasting.
Also oak-heavy, but fruity. Fermentation notes. After a while the nose is completely gone, I don't smell anything. After a short odor neutralization with a cup of coffee, it continues, the nose is interesting anyway, with a little warmth it gets really active! Fruit tea, honey-sweetened, but also quite nasty alcohol tingling in the nose. Cooled down again, the fruit notes become creamier, à la quark dessert. In the second heating, fruit tea again, but then also the fruit itself, primarily red berries. The alcohol doesn't bite like that anymore. I still find some grain, otherwise the fruit dominates everything else. Late roasted aromas.
With water, the nose looks extremely fresh, fruit juice, now incredibly intense, with pudding cream, vanilla, an extremely strong reaction to the water!
Oha, it has steam and a density so sweet that you think you can cut it like pudding. The alcohol comes really late again, but in my view it is quite pure. The sweetness sticks to your mouth, but there also seem to be fruit notes hidden behind it. On general advice I try a little water.
With water it looks much more mature, still sweet but not so overbearing. First of all there is a good punch of herbs and then a strong liquorice note develops. But I don't find it particularly fruity even now.
The finish is short and unspectacular. The sweetness ebbs and then there is actually some wood on the tongue.
Water only slightly extends the finish, it is now a bit drier, but I can no longer find the wood.
