    A lot of spiciness, pepper in combination with little age make it too hot on the tongue. In addition, extremely charged and little depth.
    You look in vain for Brennerrei's character, all covered by port influence.
    55% actually nice drinking strength but here in combination with pepper and youth too much, because it becomes extremely dry and has no oilyness.
    For me, just not a nice mouthfeel and unfortunately nothing else that I could positively mention.
    Unfortunately, the money was wasted.
