    Colour:
    gold
    Nose:
    Creamy, fruity and very leathery. Orange, sherry, wood, honey and juicy mirabelle plums and apricots. In addition, a powerful salty flavor, which is underlaid with accents of lead, charcoal and old cardboard. But also peat, smoke and echoes of furniture polish - fresh - lively - great!
    Taste:
    Soft and very salty-spicy starting. The salt content is enormous and combines with hot chilli, paprika and coarse pepper. With additional notes of coal, wet ash, mighty peat, wood and a bit pulpy orange fruit, the result is a harmonious mouthfeel - great!
    Finish:
    Very long - absolutely clean and filled with delicious phenols. The peat board stays and the wet, dark coal notes fit perfectly. In addition, with sherry, orange, a little cocoa in connection with well integrated wood, this results in a consistently high quality from A to Z.
