    Tasting notes according to the bottler:

    nose
    - Strong, dark roast espresso
    - Coffee, coffee, coffee
    - Milk chocolate and caramel
    - A nice grain note is slowly added
    - Caramelized popcorn
    - Becoming "grown up" towards the end with bitter almond and marzipan
    - Hardly any alcoholic note, despite cask strength and "The Nose"

    taste
    - Very "thick", creamy and oily
    - First sweet with milk chocolate and batter, reminiscent of American cookies
    - Discreet white pepper and cloves, which give the entire taste a spicy background
    - The sweetness fades towards the end, almonds and marzipan reappear, but also cinnamon

    Exit
    - Long and intense
    - Strong spices can be tasted long after the tasting
    - No more sweetness, the almonds are ubiquitous again
    - Despite everything, the alcohol is perfectly integrated and it never becomes uncomfortably strong

    (comes to some extent up to the finish (rather medium instead of long)
