    Like the previous batch, it needs something in the nose to get going. You can speed up this procedure by adding a few drops of water, but it doesn't have to be, giving time is also sufficient. And when the necessary time has passed, it really turns up, so that you can once again congratulate yourself on buying this bottling.
    • Nose

      At first a little closed, after a while a basket full of tropical fruits appears: passion fruit, papaya, mango, dragonfruit, banana. But also dried figs and raisins, which together with a nougat chocolate note form the foundation. Increasing seasoning, whereby the individual components cannot be separated from one another: simply a spice rack.

      Dry and not too violent start, the 56.3% glide comfortably over the tongue. Creamy, fat and full, also here with a good portion of tropical fruits. Nougat, almond chocolate, toffee, caramel. The pot still spices, which initially treat the palate with a good portion of pepper, and then a little later with allspice, marjoram, tarragon, thyme and cumin, are quite early on the pot still spices. The tropical fruits from the beginning had taken a little break in between, but are now branding again. I like that very much when flavors that have already been ticked off and passed by come back again.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium to long finish, actually. You don't really trust a 12yo, but it happens quite often, especially with Redbreast. I blame it on the pot still spices, thanks for the large amount of unmalted barley. Grated nutmeg, fresh ginger, clove powder, thyme. With nougat, almonds and rapeseed honey.
