    Came into the bottle too young - there would have been more in it!
    • Nose
      88 88
      The nose is really great. Sweet pears, Pink Lady apples, light acidity, but here too the alcohol is already slightly pungent.
    • Taste
      79 79
      What I feared, unfortunately, turned out to be true on the palate - a stinging alcohol excrement overshadowed everything else. Pear, apple and light fruit are still there, but the alcoholic stinging is the first thing I notice. Pity! 2-3 years longer in the barrel and that could have been something.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish is long, and the pear catches up with me again, along with a little cocoa powder - and the spiciness that unfortunately still lingers.

      Conclusion:

      Unfortunately, it stays with the sample. For 20-30 € less I could have overlooked the clear youth, but the price called is simply too high.
