Too bad, a very nice and interesting nose, little in the taste to follow and the finish is a bit too much on the bitter side. I would love to try it in barrel size, or at least in full drinking strength, 40% are simply too thin to dilute.
Tender smoke over everything, relatively dense with cream caramel and ripe yellow fruits, towards peach and mirabelle. A few dates can be found as well as orange zest and also some salt and iodine. Warmth makes the nose fresher, denser and more exotic. Lemon juice, star fruit, papaya with marzipan, very creamy. Also floral notes develop.
Fruity sweet with distinctly tart notes and quite a bit of salt. Dark chocolate, fruit jelly and some fir honey, is drying up. Relatively weak-breasted.
The finish belongs entirely to the oak and slightly ashy. Not too long. At the end, a memory of tropical multi-fruit juice is felt.
