At the start, a nice sweetness becomes noticeable, really intense, with a mixture of citrus fruits and dark berries. Something fresh can be recognized immediately. The sweetness is developing more and more into something deep, dark - banana-like. Alcohol is initially something to hear, but the note vanishes quickly. The red wine is fully present and can not be denied.
In the taste he makes himself immediately noticeable intensively, much more intense than the smell suggests. Of course, also clearly tannins that make themselves felt immediately. I'm just wondering if I have ever had such an intense finish. I do not think so and that was already some. But there is more.
Because berries and fruits come into their own, some cereals, coffee and orange and a little bit of wood. So slowly, the sweetness works back and spreads. Alcohol is super integrated by 46% and not disturbing at all. The longer you chew the whisky in the mouth, the sweeter and wiser it becomes. Strawberry really sneaks into the foreground.
With a little water, the teaninich becomes even smoother and sweeter, the tannins disappear clearly.
The finish is surprisingly long, I had not expected so completely, would not describe the Teaninich as mild, he takes you already. The flavors are obvious and intense and they stay that way. Strawberry punch remains in the finish. Wine very clear and the whole really with a sweet character.
