    Initial impression: nope.
    After a while: Yo, actually very tasty.

    Here is a PX-matured malt that has many rather frowned upon aromas from this type of barrel. The first time that PX seemed really uncomfortable to me at first. But the bottom line is somehow an interesting malt that is clearly good for time and air.

    Nonetheless: I liked the Mars II a lot better.

      Seasoning and herbs. And neatly. Maggi? Lovage? Is that it? Sometimes it definitely smells like the terrible mixture of salt, monosodium glutamate and aromas that my father likes to add to the soup. Just not quite as dominant and disgusting. In addition, a very light, greasy-sweet grill note. After a while, light, sweet red fruits and some white sugar in the background. The sweetness of the PX keg.

      Initially rather striking and relatively one-sided, the whole thing becomes much more coherent after a few minutes. Doesn't really appeal to me personally yet. However, the alcohol is well integrated!

      Edit: It takes time! Now I have cotton candy, burnt caramel, BBQ sauce that is a little too sweet and (unfortunately) the weird Magginotes. But pretty far in the background.

      A good surge of sweetness settles on the tongue. Pretty oily. The high alcohol content now creates a slight tingling sensation, but it's fun and doesn't bother you. Now the aromas from the nose have reversed. The sweet red fruits dominate, the Maggi and the lovage notes have receded far into the background. Thank God! Sweet red berries, white sugar, artificially sweet red apple rings, dried raspberries, cotton candy and a touch of citrus.

      Not Bad!

      Fades a bit one-dimensional and a tick too fast, but brings again pleasant tart-spicy notes and dry herbs with it. The tongue is gently covered by a gentle sweetness and spicy wood notes.
