    I really love this bottle and I wonder a bit why the ratings are relatively low. perhaps I have been a little enthusiastic in my first rating (92) today I would not rate so high but yes, 90/100
    • Nose
      a malty, honeyed and slightly waxy profile that I really enjoy. somehow a dusty feeling. apples and nuts. mild oak. a spoonful of porridge.
    • Taste
      very sharp when undiluted, I really need water:
      wood spices, polished wood. beeswax, honey, apple pie, lots of nuts, milk chocolate and soft oak.
      very creamy mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      rather long, honey and danish pastry

    • Nose
      A little lemon and some mild toffee notes.

      There are also a few nutty notes
    • Taste
      The first thing I notice is how dry it is and then some bitterness mixed in with grassy notes.

      Biscuits and cream plus some kiwi fruit
    • Finish
      Medium length, getting sweeter

    Lots of fruit on the nose, lots of wood on the tongue. Diversified.
    • Nose
      A fruity nose. At the beginning: peach, apricot, tangerines, mangos. Later, add oranges. Bitter almond and herbs.
    • Taste
      Woody and earthy, preserved peaches. Strong oak aroma. Hazelnut flavor, bitter almond, orange peel.
    • Finish
      Long and with oranges fading out.
