Color
Old gold
Nose

Fresh and fruity.

Apricots and nectarines.

Riesling white wine with a dolop of varnish.

Oak and some sherry notes emerge after a while.


Taste

Dry with quite some kick of mixed spice.

The fruit is there but not on par with what was expected from the nose.

Bolder on malted grain and some fudge towards the end.


Finish

Medium lenght.

Lightly salted, dry and bitter.

Ending on bitter oak, which I find a little bit harsh.


Comments

Have absolutely no idea what justifies the price on this. 

£40? Yes. £50? Maybe. +£150? Excuse me???

Color
Gin clear
Nose

apricots, apricot jam, prunes. nutmeg and a little vanilla. grassy and floral too.
initially the grain is rather loud but that vanishes after a while.

Taste

much better than on the nose, thick and mouthcoating, good balanced , perhaps a tad too sweet. malty nutty, fudgy. apples and very sweet plums. spicy.

Finish

medium, harmonious

Comments

good palate, a little sweet
87/100

Kein schlechter Blend. Aber der Preis ist lächerlich unverschämt
