    Colour:

    Nose:
    Very fruity, maritime and provided with tons of honey. Avocado, leather, grapefruit, lime, wood, nut, caramel and a full salinity, so that sets a tingling nose - great!
    Taste:
    Soft, harmonious, waxy and infinitely salty-spicy. Parallel to this is a blatant sweetness - that's extreme and crazy. The two elements govern the second part of the taste to the finish. Towards the finish slightly fresh and dry.
    Finish:
    Long - sweet, salty and dry. With wood, nut, coffee, cocoa, peppermint, gray smoke and wet ash, this results in a delicious finish with hand and foot!
    Comment:
    As controversial as this malt is on the one hand, on the other hand it is so good! Absolutely give time to unfold.
