Nose

Im Prinzip könnte ich die offiziellen Notes nachplappern:  "Zitrusfrüchte, Schokolade und aromatische Gewürze" trifft's ganz gut.

Ok, anfangs Kakaopulver, wandert von Trink- (süßer) Richtung Backkakao (herber), dann würzig-holzig dazu, wobei ich nicht auf das Gewürz komme, Nelke ist nahe dran, passt aber nicht ganz... bissl Pfeifentabak, die Zitrone ist eher so'ne homöpathische Assoziation - da könnte man sich hier und da einen Spritzer einbilden.

Später habe ich da noch eine Schweißnote, aber nicht eklig, eher so süßlicher, frisch luftgetrockneter Sommer-Arbeits-Stirnschweiß.

Taste

erstes Tropfenablecken: rosinig-weinig-holzig

jep, viel Michschokolade, ein Tropfen süßer Rotwein, im Mundgefühl ziemlich trocken, je länger, desto bitterer (Backkakao), holziger, leicht pfeffrig, trotz nur 40% erstaunlich vollmundig

Finish

mittellang, Kakao, sanft pfeffrig-warm

Comments

Nach 6 Jahren mal wieder im Glas, und ich finde ihn überraschend gut, süffig, easy drinking, kein Tausendsassa, aber trotz 40% ziemlich gehaltvoll, keine dünne Plörre, hat gut Fass abbekommen. Solide ~40€ verdient er sich, da würde ich keinem Einsteiger von abraten.

Een heerlijke malt en de Amerikaanse eikenhouten bourbonvaten geven de whisky zijn vanillesmaak.

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Sweet sherry and stale-tea, hot cocoa powder, baked apples and fruit compote, soft sugared baking spices, and a touch of honeyed citrus.

Taste

Pepper and pancake syrup, dried fruits, and cinnamon sugar.

Finish

Citrus fruit and rind and a bit of dark chocolate.

Comments

It was okay, but not something I'd seek out again. Adding water is not necessary or advised.
