    The intense sherry aroma dominates from the start, and over time a variety of new and interesting aromas are added. Tobacco, earth, leather, a variety of red, dark grapes and berries, especially juicy sour cherries. Complex, multi-layered, intense and incredibly tasty!

    • Nose
      Reddish amber shines in the Premium Snifter while juicy sour cherries and dark sweet fruits are noticeable immediately after pouring. Hints of wet tobacco leaves, crumbs of dark chocolate and a handful of sweet raisins plus a hint of sour blackberries and shortbread cookies. I give the malt the opportunity to breathe for a few minutes, in the meantime a multitude of thick and oily "legs" pull their endless paths back into the glass. Sweet tobacco with a minimal smoky note, a touch of earth and malty grain, dark sour cherries and sweet dried fruits, the nose noticeably gains aromas and intensity.
    • Taste
      Dark sherry flavors make their way over the tongue with bitter wood tones, a peppery spiciness tickles the tip of the tongue while dark chocolate mixes with creamy hazelnuts. Brine dissolves from spicy wooden elements, sour cherries and currants merge with blackberries and abrasions from dried grapefruit peel, again dark earth tones with a "dirty" touch appear. Wet leaves float creamy and oily under the tongue, fresh herbs and spices appear. The alcohol is wonderfully harmoniously integrated, tobacco and hints of wet leather gradually come to the fore.
    • Finish
      Dark, dried fruits stick to the palate with sometimes bitter wood tones, voluminous warmth floods the palate, the mouthfeel becomes noticeably more oily and greasy. In the background there is again this dirty and earthy note ... The interesting and intense aftertaste lingers on the palate for a long time and leaves a smeary film on the tongue.
