The first nose is really dominated by fresh aromas, apples and pears, with cereal notes, some malt and a distinct sweetness. If you give the nose time to let the liveliness fade away, there are notes of fine sherry and some spice. Crazy how the finish is noticeable here and presents both worlds almost in parallel.
The apple freshness remains in the nose even after long periods of enjoyment. Somehow exciting.
In terms of taste, it is immediately more intense and deeper. I still have fruit on the palate, but the sherry is much more present with raisins and compote. This is followed by a suitable powerful wort, which can feel a little dryness. The alcohol content is well chosen, has enough power to develop and stress the tongue a little.
The finish is so fine for me, you can feel a nice woody, spicy finish, the sherry dominates here a little again. You can feel a slight dryness here too.
