- Peculiar Molt, complex and deep aroma, taste / finish take more power and depth than the variety of components, the strong perfume component - the washing powder and the men's hairdresser's - dominates, peculiarly and unusually, but rather harmoniously and appropriately.
Raw, open, cereal with an admixture of the barnyard in the first nose, then fruit and lemon notes, freshly planed hardwood, lemonade, mineral tones, a few wildflowers and honey, perfume motifs - Soviet men's colognes, hairdresser; washing powder, vanilla.
Powerful, woody-perfumery, bright lemon-pepper wave, bitter young bark, lemon peel, light oiliness, soap, malt and grain notes.
Perfumery, sweet and sour, warming, lemon zest, spicy bitter wood.
Light nose of corn cob and vanilla, elegant herbs and light yeast.
Sweet entry with increasing varm peppery spices, light oak and bitterness
medium long going from fading spices to bitter almond finish
- Rarely had such a variety of fruits in the nose. On the palate he does not cause the same enthusiasm. But altogether a very pleasing malt.
At first quite malty, but quickly sets a citrus note, which is replaced a little later by delicious peach jam. Also on board: rhubarb, gooseberry, but also slightly sour apple. After a while, a very subtle, fresh wood note is noticeable.
The fruit basket of the nose is now on the palate a little less varied and vorgruendig away, for more maltseuts comes through. No pronounced voluminoeser Malt, more of a more delicate genus. The alcohol is quite present, but not disturbing.
Sweet and fruity (cherry) with medium-long finish.
