n: a big load of maturity and complexity! it is very fruity on apples and pears,
roasted nuts, marzipan, cafe au lait, milk chocolate. the oak is not overdoing.
nice woody spices. herbal tea.
t: a little sharp at first when you taste it neat. more on the spicy side with chocolate
with water: creamy mouth feel, rather dry, even bitter, green tea, roasted nuts,
getting a little cardboardy,
f: long, dry
comments: the nose was wonderful but the palate and the finish did not really
satisfy me. perhaps I have to give it a second chance!
just gave it a second try and I must say that this time it was not as bitter as last time. still it is rather dry, still a little too dry for my taste. but I go 2 points up. so 87/100
