    Especially with some drops of water, this one is just great. It takes away most of the heat on the palate, and doesn't spoil the presence of the other senses.
    • Nose
      A lovely nose with dark cherries, prunes, oranges, wood shavings, polished oak, vanilla, cinnamon, milk chocolate, hazelnut and pepper.  There's a hint of dunnage warehouse too.
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, rather hot, with pepper, ginger, wood, orange and cherries. Then, hazelnut and milk chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long, medium spiced with pepper and cinnamon, again dark cherries, coffee, chocolate and dates.

    This was half a year after opening the bottle and I really am starting to like this more and more. The strong young sherrynote which I identify as rowan-dominance is a bit challenging to me, but this is passing it in taste and deepening also by the nose.
    • Nose
      Really tight without water, though the same tones: a sweet young sherry with red berries like grapes, a hint of raspberry and a lot of rowan and rowan-wine. A touch of mocha and chocolade and a fine oaky toffee. Some off-notes of moldiness, wet earth and also nailpolish but nothing really disturbing. Really needs water, though with this high volumes that goes without saying...
    • Taste
      Sweet and boozy at the beginning, then raisins, fresh, ripe and sweet red apple. A pleasant sweet fruitiness, cherries, raspberry and lingonberry jam. Evens out and gets better with enough time, though gets more bitterish after half an hour.
    • Finish
      Sweet and round.

    • Nose
      8,5 Słodka z nutami wiśni, cynamonu, wanilii, dębu oraz słodu jęczmiennego z odrobiną kawy z mlekiem.

      8,6 Dość pikantna z nutami wiśni oraz śliwki z odrobiną imbiru, cynamonu i białego pieprzu.
    • Finish
      8,6 Długi, lekko ostry z nutami wiśni, dębu i zboża z odrobiną wanilii, goździka oraz białego pieprzu.
