Too long in the barrel? Maybe, but not for me.
It's a lot of fun, but there's nothing left to sneeze at the same time.
20 years in a seemingly active sherry barrel have left their mark, really heavy, almost tangible aromas, clearly oak and of course a massive sherry freight, dark fruits, raisins, furniture polish, behind a slightly nutty sweetness, marzipan, tobacco, here makes the Verriechen Anyway, a lot of fun, with some patience, I also find some chocolate, but this one does not really jump in the face, but if you have it, that remains, too, rather creamy whole milk instead of dark, roasted waffle, like from a Hanuta, with By the time you get something behind the wood and the dark notes and it gets creamier and a little easier, beautiful change
it draws directly the mouth together (astringent ;-)), wow, full load of sherry, oak juice ;-), very woody, dark fruits, all very concentrated, light acidity, dry, then nuts, on the palate very fruity, also a certain spiciness, which I can not define, yes the barrel was very active, pleasant drinking without water
still full of nuts, roasted aromas, wood, now almost something like light smoke, which I also associate with the tobacco from the nose and probably comes from the European oak, which lingers very long, becoming increasingly fruity, dry , Fruit bowl, one knows after a few minutes, what you have just drunk
