Farbe: Typisch Port Cask lachsfarben - eher wenige dicke Legs

Nase: Die Portreifung kann sich nicht verstecken und ist direkt mit der typischen Süße und dunklen überreifen Früchten in der Nase, umschmeichelt von mächtig Rauch, mit zunehmender Dauer kommt leichter Kuhstall dazu, ganz unten meine ich noch dunkle Schokolade zu finden. Der Alkohol ist insgesamt wirklich gut eingebunden und macht sich nich störend bemerkbar.

Mund: Startet überraschend verhalten, nicht sprittig, die Zunge wird von kalter Asche belegt, leicht bitter, dann stark in überreife rote Früchte gehend, Alkohol setzt sich dann mehr und mehr durch, somit wird er mit zunehmender Dauer etwas "schärfer".

Abgang: Auch hier bliebt das ganze Teil auf den Noten, die bereits im Mund dominiert haben, eher trocken und leicht bitter, fruchtig, süß, lecker.

Fazit: Port-Reifungen bei PC sind m.W.n. ja selten genug, von daher eine tolle Erfahrung, das Bottling kommt nicht ganz an die Top Sherry-Bottlings aus 2013 ran, allerdings braucht es sich auch nicht zu verstecken. Insgesamt eine tolle Alternative zu den Bourbon- und Sherry PCs, die es da draußen ja "en masse" gibt.

Mighty nose. Very promising. I smell smoke ham, some PC typical sweetness. The taste does not fully meet the expectations. Weaker than expected. Will still need to taste this one again, so far I would have it at 88 (nose 92, taste 86).
