      Forest fruits - black berries and wild peaches. Citrus, roses and gooseberries.
    • Finish
      Soft spices.

    Monolithic, but I will not complain. On the same register as the TWA / DD even see one step above. But I should regouter the latter to be sure. When in doubt, he gets the same rating ...
    • Nose
      Mmmhhhh Fruit bomb! Beautiful peach notes. Peaches in syrup, haribo peaches, ripe brugnons and nectarines still a little hard and tart. A real festival! Milk chocolate and custard too but more discreetly. Apart from a few dried apricots and brown sugar, we do not really feel the influence of the oloroso. And it may not be worse.
    • Taste
      Round, fruity, sweet. From the liquid peach, wow!
    • Finish
      We are always on yellow fruits with stones, endless. It's like gorging Haribo peach sweets with this lovely acidity that helps to avoid getting into the heavy sidetracks of some oloroso sherry. Although we do not find many features in this superb malt.
