Deep dark copper shimmers rust-colored in the glass, on the glass wall of my Premium Snifter there is an oily and syrupy streak from which a large number of long and viscous drops are released. Heavy metal and oil rise voluminously, muff and mold end in a violent sulfur cloud, whereby I find this sulfur note very pleasant. Gradually, dried grapes and berries are released from the extremely dirty nose, dark oranges and hints of morello cherries. Added to this are brine, algae, fishing trawler and stormy sea surprise ... Caramelized, almost burnt sugar jams with menthol and phenol, the sulfur returns voluminously and stimulates the saliva.
The first sip is oily and dirty, spreading violently, biting and burning on the tongue. A mixture of used oil storage, car workshop, iodine, algae and sulfur puts the palate in "shock shock" ... Slowly the powerful mix of different "materials" and ingredients fades away. With the second sip, salt, pepper, lubricating oil, iodine, algae, decayed wood, sulfur, rotten eggs, lemons and grapefruit with sulfurized raisins and dried fruit explode powerfully on the tongue and envelops the entire palate including the throat in cozy warmth.
The complete variety of flavors still sticks to the palate and draws warmth through the heated and stimulated mouth area ... I have the feeling that the aftertaste just can't say goodbye and doesn't want to fade away ...
