    Not bad stuff for his 40%, but no super throw.
    • Nose
      Especially after the first uncorking of the bottle: heavy sherry barrels. Apples fallen in autumn from the trees. Mint. The typical Jura honey. Light liquorice.
    • Taste
      Licorice is more apparent, all lightly burned. Very spicy and full-bodied.
    • Finish
      And now burnt caramel and especially licorice clearly take over the scepter. But also cocoa powder and mysterious apples sound.

    The nose needed time, but developed beautifully. That, alas, cannot be
    said about the palate.
    • Nose
      The nose offers the typical Jura characteristics immediately. I get than
      rancid edge again, although that sounds a lot worse than it really is.
      Dandelions and malt with a hint of smoke in the background. After breathing it
      offers caramel and roasted nuts. A small amount of raisins and oak, as well as
      some tobacco. Spices? Yes, vanilla and candied ginger. Actually, this nose is getting better by the minute, so I will leave it
      for a while. After five minutes it has become super fruity. Apple, rhubarb and
      peaches â€
    • Taste
      It is oily, mouthcoating and immediately very sweet. It reminds me of
      plum liqueur. And praline. OK, pralines filled with licqueur. Not
      bad, but not great either. Not a lot is happening
      on the palate. The spices do give it some depth.
    • Finish
      The medium long finish remains sweet, but becomes somewhat spirity
      towards the death.
