    Interesting and extraordinary
    • Nose
      88 88
      A little restrained at first, then lychee, sweet yellow plums, vanilla, cardamom and cinnamon. With a little time in the glass a nice but not excessive sweetness develops. Popcorn, cotton candy and Turkish honey round off the malt, which is generally very balanced and round.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Immediately you have cotton candy, after a certain time white pepper and ripe honeydew melon. Then the aromas swivel more in the floral direction with fresh herbs, but also a certain oriental touch with cardamom, ginger and cinnamon are noticeable. Then there is also a little (attention, one of my favorite associations) dusty basement. Overall very round, harmonious, but pushes well, even if the alcohol is well integrated.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium to long with Turkish honey, some dryness and spices
