    In fact, this comparison has a clear winner - the two years younger malt. If the 1990er Ceramic Jug is still a really solid and neat drinking color with minor weaknesses, then this bottling can inspire me much more. A little more restrained on the nose, it unfolds its potential on the palate and above all in the - for this age - strong finish. Honestly, I did not expect that either. A really nice malt, which could be enough without hesitation as an aperitif.
    • Nose
      Somewhat fresher and stronger than the 1990s from this series, the fruit flavors undoubtedly present here and with a similar character (bright, green fruits, creamy honey), but not so superficial and dominant. Unsurprisingly, here too discreet oak in the background.
    • Taste
      As with its predecessor, the malt needs a second before it can unfold on the tongue. Mild, but emphatically then the complete range, which was already known in front of the nose. Here even more of a hint of sweetish and with stronger fruit flavors, to the apples, grapes and the honey from the nose join now still overripe pears.
    • Finish
      Sweet finish, here a stark difference to the older bottling, which was much more dominated by the wood at this point. Here sweet and fruity for a very long time, the salivation is stimulated. No trace of disturbing bitterness or dryness. Chapeau! This round clearly goes to the younger representative.
