    This one needs some time, at first the nose appears to be the best part, but with some patience everything gets stronger, and especially the finish improves significantly.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Very sweet aroma, vanilla and honey, a bit grainy as well. Also a bit spicy, pepper. Not a very intense nose.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Now some tingling mouthfeel appears, sweet, vanilla and honey, but somehow a bit thin.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Still a little pickering, sweet, honey, vanilla, a bit drying mouthfeel. At frist not too long, but after some time it gets longer, stronger and much better.
