Original bottling for the Hanseatische Weinhandelsgesellschaft Bremen, 44.8% alc., From the Micro-Provenance series, matured in the Oloroso barrel for two and a half years, Cask 001.
Nose: must, grapes and alcohol, vanilla and some "coast" (brackish, salt), plus the sweetness of gummy bears.
Palate: Tart, slightly alcoholic, bitter grapefruit, slightly dry and peppery piquancy, vanilla. From the oak is still feeling nothing.
Finish: Not very long, some spice and pepper remain in the reverberation.
Conclusion: Almost 10 years in the Bourbon barrel, the rest in Oloroso. Do I like him? Difficult. He is not easy to drink. The sour notes on the palate are not serious, but disturb. If you would rather have left a few years in the barrel, because the alcohol is not very well involved despite drinking strength. Only the nose alone really convinces me.
