    Nose: thick and waxy, with chocolate oak, some furniture polish, a bit mineral and musty, a good portion of nuts, caramel, malt with a little glucose. Pickled cherries, fresh apple pie, peach, a nice creaminess that I always have with this type of barrel.

    Taste: very sweet and creamy, then the oak with chocolate, then a real fruit bomb with malt candy, oak, white coffee, chocolate, again nuts and caramel.

    Finish: very long, the oak holds really well with this strong malt-fruit-caramel mixture.

    It takes a little time in the glass, but it is rewarded, it really opens with air.
    Forget the € 150 that is now being called for him, € 80 fits better, I paid a little more at the time. However, it is very drinkable and beautifully independent, the brandy cask gives it a nice unique selling point with the mineral Bunna nuttiness.

    Very complex and varied, which you can deal with nicely. The alcohol is well integrated. Nice "legs" form in the glass. It is remarkable that when he shakes the bottle he foams like apple spritzer. I've never had so much foam!

      First, it starts with a subtle, mineral freshness. At first, the alcohol is barely noticeable, dark honey is noticeable, crème brulée, Werther's real creamy sweets.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Kanz shortly comes a slight sourness (cider?), Which is replaced by a creamy, warming sherry sweetness. Then violent pepper and walnut aromas come out, before a musty old wool scarf in connection with the pepper announces the finish.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The finish is rather long, first really peppery, then this spice wears off and it slowly, subtly fades away with wood.
