    A fairly typical "Bruehler". Lots of fruit, a noticeable sweetness, brute aromas.
    Doesn't quite come close to the Cigar Malts 1 and especially 2 for me, but better than the Third Edition.

      Very intense and dense aromas. With calm in the glass, the sweet aromas come out strongly. The fruity sweetness is somewhere between old school sherry and brandy, with hints of cherry. It gets a lot spicier with tossing. Meat broth, lovage, pepper, marjoram.
      No alcohol noticeable at all.
      A little more pleasant with water but at the expense of the intensity. Additionally almond.

      Strong acceleration, here the 54% are already noticeable. Then fruity and spicy elements balance each other out. Red fruits, plum cake, chocolate, vanilla and also some oak, each with a touch of dryness and bitterness. With a lot of air in the bottle then even more coffee, very reminiscent of coffee liqueur. With water, the malt becomes more accessible on entry. However, the aroma then loses significantly. I like that better.

      The fruit is present and constant, overall it is of medium length. Fades away delicious and balanced
