    I love it. Changes with time and water. Many different facets.

    Nice thing!
    • Nose

      Grassy and earthy fresh. Almost as sweet as a px barrel. Alcohol doesn't sting. Then there are dark berries. Blackberry, black currant. Then there are more dark flavors. Wet earth. Barrel wort very easily. Wine can't really be made out. Ripe oranges peek through from time to time. Nut and nougat cream Great!

      Immediately covering her mouth. It tingles from the wort. Sweet and oily. Earthy and fruity flavors come through. Sweet raisins towards the finish.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Mainly sweet and light pepper or ginger notes.
      Rather short to medium long.

    I like to put up with that. Wine barrels can be pretty beasts. This is more like a great sherry finish. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/10/07/eine-hand-voll-highlands/
