Reminds a little of the Deanston 2008 Red Wine Matured (WID: 104622), but I like this one a bit better, especially on the nose.
Sand cakes, spices (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg), blackberries, black currants, dried herbs (in the direction of marjoram, chervil) in combination with a nice menthol freshness, very ripe grapes, forest honey, salt caramel, gentle tannins
With a little water, the salted caramel comes to the fore, the herbal and woody notes are lost
strong, short-pricked start, then it swings immediately towards viscous malt sweetness; despite the small age nice texture on the palate! Fruity notes of grapes and cranberries then lead into the tartness, the wood pushes more and more over time - reminds me a bit of this bitter chocolate with pieces of fruit.
With water sweeter and fruity and even a little spiciness now flashes
Long, astringent, dark berry mix, malty-sweet, woody-spicy
With water, some sharpness remains in the finish, otherwise little change in the aroma profile is noticeable
