Nose

Frisch, leicht fruchtig; später Eichenaromen mit etwas Vanille, die an Kraft gewinnt, wenn man eine Weile einen Deckel auf das Glas legt. Dafür verschwindet dann die Fruchtigkeit.

Taste

Sehr weich und leicht; etwas ölig im Mund; eher würzig mit Eichen- und Malznoten; dann Süße und wieder Vanille

Finish

Die Eichenaromen bleiben noch kurz zusammen mit etwas Nussigem auf der Zunge, dann ist er aber auch weg! Eher kurz...

Comments

Für ein "Überraschungsei" aus dem Discounter (ALDI) ist der Blackstone überraschend gut ausgebaut. Für Einsteiger und als Präsent eigentlich ok, mit 20,- aber zu teuer!

Rubbing alcohol, cereal, and freshly cut hay. Ripe apples, slightly sour and vinegary.

Taste

Canned pears, barley sugar, caramel. Very sweet. Some kirsch or plum schnaps. Quite spirit driven, but that is to be expected.

Finish

Short with a lingering sweetness. Minor to no wood influence at this state.

Comments

Not really a bargain at 20€, but it was a seasonal offer from German ALDI markets, so I doubt there'll be more of this.
