Sweetness and fruit fill the air. Vanilla and caramel appear, as well as a distinct aroma of ripe red apples. A bit behind I find citrus notes that remind me of tangerines. Then it becomes a bit tart and slightly malty on the nose. A slightly sharp sensation reminds me of pepper. After some time, the sweetness and the aromatic fruits combine to create a floral aroma. Apricots come out. Finally, the citrus fruits become a little more dominant. At first glance, the two barrel types harmonize well with each other.
It continues seamlessly on the tongue. According to the nose, the taste is sweet and fruity with apples and citrus. The latter, however, are much more acidic than in the nose. Delicate oak notes follow, as well as some marzipan and cinnamon. Along with the oak, plums, raisins and dark chocolate also come to the fore. It has something of rum-grape-nut chocolate. In addition again a slight sharpness that fills the mouth.
The sweetness slowly decreases, the mouthfeel becomes drier and the fruits linger. Then it gets a bit Christmassy again with a combination of cinnamon, raisins and dark chocolate. Nuts, some caramel and pineapple are added towards the end. Unfortunately, the finish is not very long.
