Nose: My first thought: milk-based walnut ice cream, with a sour old spicy sherry note (which almost always reminds me of lovage). After some time in the glass, the harsh oak flavors can be identified, which leave me long stale black tea with some mint, tobacco and leather associate. The alcohol is not present in any degree, wonders at 40% vol. But also not. But the aroma is not weak due to the alcohol either. He is a flatterer and has something of everything, Nothing really stands out. With more oxygen, the walnut ice vanishes note; earthy wood tones and old vinous, spicy sour sherry go hand in hand. In between, some dark chocolate and nut nougat always flash out of the flavors. I like the nose very much! Taste: Soft, old and damn spicy, it comes over in the first sip. Barely sweet and relatively low in acidity, but a great deal of old sherry that reminds me of old leather couches, tobacco, black tea and cocoa. Perfect mouthfeel and exactly my case. He generally looks older in taste than he is. Nevertheless, I think 43% or 46% vol. would have been a little better. The second sip is also impressive with no alcohol, an acid-spike approach, but can not prevail against the spice's strong spiciness. The finish is bittersweet and long-lasting spicy and goes back into cocoa. The finish is medium I would say. In general, the flavors are just my case, but 40% are a bit weak. Conclusion: delicious. I can hardly say more about that. A little weak on the chest because of the 40% vol., But still the flavors I was hoping for. If he was not that bad now, I might get a bottle.
