- Noticeable progress from the 16-year-old, not quite as fickle and a bit more mature. In places the bourbon influence seems a little exaggerated, but elsewhere you have so wonderful fruits that you could assume that one or the other sherry barrel is also involved.
Obligatory bourbon influences, the American oak leaves a clear and spicy impression after more than two decades, vanilla, biscuit and caramel, pineapple and orange, apricot, sweet banana, apple and pear, beeswax flakes with a little honey, plum wine and cherry, mocha notes, dried ones Figs and hazelnuts
first soft with honey and caramel, then spicy with oak and pepper, the age comes into its own, but a little too much bourbon in between, vanilla and banana, apple, waxy, slightly bitter bitterness of mocha and bread spices, plum wine, apricot and Cherry, raisin and hints of citrus fruits, some barley malt, almonds and walnuts, tobacco and leather
warming with vanilla and strong white oak, velvety spice of cinnamon and clove, caramel and cocoa powder, plum wine and apricot, slightly malty, very waxy and resinous with honey, apple, aniseed, hazelnut
fruity, a little almond paste, lemony freshness, pastry
it opens with cooked white fruits, bread crumbs, crushed fresh cereals, a little anise herbs on the fennel
vanilla custard at this time with a little honey, feedback on the cereal, still freshness, baked apple and banana fruit,
anise, floral, vanilla and a little woody, pleasant medium finish.
the next day, malt and pastry, honey, a little on the almond paste.
