    The wine barrel is noticeable and brings a nice fruitiness. Overall, however, it is too out of round and unbalanced for me.
    • Nose
      The alcohol stings a bit on the first nose, then ripe fruit, red apple, raspberry, some acidity, wine gums, cookie dough, light muff that probably comes from the smoke, but which I don't really notice as such.
    • Taste
      The alcohol is also quite present on the tongue, immediately peppery and spicy, then becomes sweeter and fruity. Apples, red berries, grapes, some toasted malt, caramel. The spiciness always resonates something.
    • Finish
      fruity, spicy, but relatively short.

    Tasty nose, maybe a little too vinous. Rather weak on the palate on the chest; no trace of the wine ...

    Nose: smoke, charcoal, sour, greasy, fermented fruit, wild berry

    Taste: gum, ashes, "dirty", acidic towards the end

    Finish: Medium length, sour, smoked bacon

    Conclusion: Unfortunately, this is not my world.
