Air is good for him, it mainly brings out the aromas of the stout finish.
The currently traded price of over 1000 € is absurd and does not correspond to the quality.
The alcohol is immediately noticeable, and the oak is clearly visible. Sweet basic character, freshly felled fir wood with resin. Ripe fruits. Over time, there are tropical hints, dried mango and a hint of passion fruit.
There is a freshness of mint, herbs and chocolate.
There is always a slight edge to everything.
A dry start.
Intense, with dried fruit, a clear minerality and light floral notes.
A note of sherry, whereby I think more of a bourbon barrel for the first occupancy.
The finish is extremely dry and long. It remains a grainy note and at the very end the stout barrel makes itself felt with malty and hoppy notes.
