Nose: Round and creamy, with an unusual smoke, which I find not bad and refreshing, something else. Sherry sweetness, I need a little distance from the glass, the alcohol is a little stinging in the nose, but after a short time I don't notice it anymore. Shortbread, a real shortbread biscuit with pieces of chocolate in the nose with dried figs, plum jam, orange, raisins and spices or also slightly herbaceous. The nose is cool, I have to say achAfter a while, really Hanuta in the glass, blatant, I've never had that before. Horny complex malt!
Flavor: Full, voluminous, very memory-floating, sweet and spicy, lots of chocolate, caramel, oak, spices, a little white pepper, then very sweet, pickled fruit, red groats, then again the oak and chocolate accompanied by the beautiful smoke. Has a little bit of its honey barbecue sauce. At the second sip even sweeter, what for the lovers of barrel monsters!
Finish: medium length, with the chocolate, the strong sweetness, the white pepper, oak and the hot smoke. I am surprised that it really shows a lot of oak. The sweetness is very sustainable and could disturb one or the other, has a little bit of liqueur.
It is not for every day, at least not for me. A real dessert malt, the nose is to kneel down!
