Color: copper to chestnut
Nose: very spicy, a lot of salt, herbs, ripe oranges, chocolate, cocoa powder, tobacco leaf, black pepper, heavy oil balsamic vinegar, almond, leather, almonds, tea with apple flavor and straw (here despite the same age no wobbly nose, no significant fluctuations of Beginning with a fine saltiness throughout).
Taste: Soft, round and harmonious! Spicy herbs, honey, a lot of dull leather, not very mature almonds and getting saltier and more powerful. Old sherry barrel flavors in combination with long-drawn tea are spreading; dreamlike.
Finish: Long, but immediately very dry. Sweet and tart combination of almonds, herbs, tea and wood. The oak wood is towards the end always staerker, but perfectly integrated and not intrusive.
Remark: out the back very, very dry; dusty old attic!
