Old straw shines in the Premium Snifter, from a distance a wonderfully smoky fragrance blows from the glass, oily "legs" pull their fast tracks back into the glass. Sweet fruit notes stand out from the smoky top note, mild peat and abrasion of orange peel play together. Maritime notes such as salty seawater, subtle iodine and slippery algae harmonize perfectly with the now earthy peat and the sweet fruit note. Oranges, apricots and peaches, along with sweet caramel and creamy toffee, create a wonderful overall impression.
Mild peat and fruit spills over the tongue, cold smoke rises, minimal sets wooden sharpness on the tongue. A pinch of white pepper trickles on the tongue, warmth floods the palate. Tart oranges and a touch of citrus fruit dissolve from the smoke and peat notes sticking to the tongue, burnt sugar and a chunk of hard caramel slowly dissolve in the saliva under the tongue. Salt dissolves from wet wood. Appearances of grapefruit and fresh mint rise, tart and old walnuts appear in combination with dry wood tones.
Herb and slightly bitter stick wood elements and peat on the palate, the cold smoky note is the whole time pleasantly in the background. Citrus fruits and dark yellow berries create a sweet and fruity contrast with caramel and toffee. For a long time, the aftertaste of its smoky-peaty nature remains in the memory while at the end, white pepper discreetly burns on the palate and on the tongue.
