    I thank my friend that I was allowed to try this good drop.
    Color: dark gold
    • Nose
      88 88
      First of all, there are really great powers of berry fruit and plum mustiness in the nose.
      Then it becomes slightly salty and blends with sweet orange, but overripe almost gammligen orange fruit balls.
      As a slight sharpness is in the nose still a little red pepper to recognize.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Caramel flavor with light citrus freshness mixes in the background stronger with malt flavor and dark sourdough bread.
      Then comes sweetness and at the end with old leather taste.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Unfortunately not so long is the finish with great hazelnut toffee flavors and creamy, slightly salty malt note.

    Color: Old gold with light amber
    Nose: Great, dark aromas of plum jam, blueberries and raisins. Salty, old sherry with notes of oranges, vanilla and some glue. The whole is spiced with white pepper.
    Taste: Quite clear, thinly structured and differentiated with lots of orange and salty lemon fruit, caramel and vanilla - but a little one-dimensional. Towards the end, notes of old shoe closet, leather, malt and dull herbs are added.
    Finish: Medium long - Herbal notes with orange and honey, as well as some wood, malt, toffee and lots of delicious caramel.
    89 points (nose: 91 / taste: 88 / finish: 89)
