    Simone Uhl was passionate about good products and still had the possibility of having a limited series, it will be the last before her departure, maybe find her friend a bottler?
    nose:
    old sherry (candied juicy black cherries, even toasted!)
    well soaked wood, leather a little and mold, a little damp, a little mineral
    mouth:
    the characteristic sherry here:
    an old piece of furniture, an old grimoire, a little dust and a dark light, this is what appears!
    otherwise, ripe fruit, macerated, you can smell the barrel coming out of the glass, it is also intense alcohol level and we are starting to regret the Couvreur reductions for the other bottles!
    here, the malt is impregnated, the wood is soaked, the sherry esters give off various scents on the fruits and the wood, as if we felt the tail of the cherry, as if the wood were liquefied, musk too, juice fruit syrup heated on the fireside like a great huntsman sauce, the PX sherry amalgam can simply be?
    the bitterness with the feeling of crushed almond kernel helps to enhance the already present scents. sweet spicy return, cooked plums and slight acidity at the end.
    final:
    long, on a sensation made more here than macerated, alcohol makes the scents hold for a long time for a "only" 16 year old!
