In the nose comes first strong alcohol, probably a cask strength. Then red fruits, a little smoke, seasoning. All this is very intertwined with each other. A little later, the fruits are sweeter.
In the mouth it starts very strong, full-bodied and very spicy. After that it becomes fruity and always sweeter. The individual flavors are very difficult to grasp. The spice goes towards cinnamon, slight spiciness, maybe a little cardamom. Then come red fruits, red wine, mead.
The finish is medium long, sweet with light cocoa notes and a little smoke.
With a little water, it is a bit rounder and more pleasing, with a slight sharpness remains noticeable and the spices are very present.
