In the Premium Snifter, light caramel shimmers, thick and oily "legs" adorn the glass wall, while creamy apricots and velvety peaches gently rise from the glass. More yellow fruits come into their own, slightly floral and grassy, mirabelle plums and quinces are followed by hints of sweet apples and ripe pears. Spicy wood tones and meadow herbs appear discreetly with a touch of dried vanilla pod, the alcohol is wonderfully soft and mild. A touch of cane sugar and old mint, hints of milk chocolate and toffee, the nose is incredibly mild and yet very complex and multi-layered.
A mixture of spicy wood and dark yellow fruit makes its way through the mouth after the first sip, a minimal pinch of white pepper envelops the tongue and lines the palate with a mild spiciness. The spicy wood tones become more intense, apricots and apples appear dark, hazelnuts swim tartly in the stimulated saliva under the tongue. Grassy and floral elements appear again, fresh meadow herbs and vanilla pods emerge and end in tart and spicy wooden elements. After another sip, the peppery spiciness on the tongue intensifies, the saliva is massively stimulated again, grassy walnuts mingle with tart and sometimes bitter wood tones.
Unripe walnuts stick to the palate with tart wood tones, white pepper massages the tip of the tongue while grassy and floral elements reappear. Dark, yellow fruit notes rest flat and muted on the palate, the pleasant sharpness slowly fades on the tongue and stimulates the flow of saliva again. Nuts, a touch of wet leaves, spicy and creamy wood tones, fresh herbs and sweet caramel, the aftertaste burns off a firework of aromas before it gradually fades and leaves an oily or greasy film on the tongue.
