    • Nose
      88 88
      Pur: Here dominates the alcohol. With a good shot of water: Now he opens up clearly. Something cotton candy, a little coffee and a subtle smell of smoked pours into the nose. All very easy.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Pur: It's admittedly too intense for me. Again, the alcohol kills everything to taste, except a wood note. With a good shot of water: Amazing how this malt turns on. At the beginning ripe sweet raspberries come to the fore, which are then replaced by wood, chocolate and a subtle smoke. Of course, when he's ten years old, he's not terribly complex, but this taste of dark chocolate with dried raspberries during a BBQ is just great.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The finish is short to medium, also pure. With a good dash of water: The wood notes remain lying on the tongue (did not think that American Oak is capable of) and the aftertaste of really good dark chocolate with a little pepper left a satisfied feeling.
