    Terrific.
    • Nose
      Not only the color is bright, but also the nose. Very fresh first impression. Apples and pears, sea salt, with bacon buffing on a charcoal fire in the background. Grated lime peel, the juice of a pineapple.
    • Taste
      The goes in the start pretty ran and delivers a 5-course meal in one fell swoop. There is peat smoke and sea salt, but also very sweet, almost candied fruits. Overripe pineapple, with lemons, oranges and light apples.
    • Finish
      In the long finish, smoke billows, dried herbs and roasted lemon peel cover the tongue.

    The smoke strong, fiery, dirty.
    A nice, slightly sweet note of wood in the background.
    Full of spices, a whole bouquet full of flowers.

    Very strong, snappy in the mouth.
    The full breadth of flavors, just like in the nose.
    The smoke recedes.
    The barrel notes unfold.

    I almost have the impression that his "Still Young" was the best.
    But that shouldn't affect the other two ...
