very ripe, full and dense, sweet bright sherry, salty, mineral, light fruits with smoke, very sweet, pleasantly mild in the mouth, great bitterness ... it is difficult to describe this, it is so interwoven, pleasant and dense , really nice malt!
This grown-up doesn't have an easy character. Give him some time to achieve his full potential and he'll reward you with a warming friendship. This competition animal has already filled its cupboard with awards and deserves so. A great all-rounder and at it's best during winter.
Quite shy at first. Honey and heather flowers. He shows off his complexity at room temperature. Orange marmalade, leather and bread-pudding with raisins and nuts (and a splash of brandy). With water: soft traces of tobacco smoke and sweet raisins. Then the sweetness gets countered by the bitterness of oranges and heathery scents.
Oranges with honey as a starter. Then sweet peat smoke, oak and strong coffee. Water releases the sweet aroma's. Honey, flowers and some fresh mint.
Sweet smoke evolves into a strong espresso with cane sugar.
