Nose

Stroop, siroop aardbij. Hele mooie complexe geuren. Honing, donker fruit met bloesem. Weinig hout invloed

Taste

Zoet, siroop. Complexe ontwikkeling, weinig samentrekkend gevoel 

Finish

Heerlijk, grote smaak explosie. Erg sterk, vers gras, heel natuurlijk. Geen medicinale smaak. Met water erbij nog beter, ongelofelijk hoeveel hier in gaat

Nose

Klasse Farbe, dunkel, appetitlich. Er riecht fruchtig, sprittig, rieche Quitte.

Taste

Ein erster kleiner Schluck entpuppt sich als Hammer, kräftiger Antritt, mir treibt es den Speichel in den Mund. Die Note hat jetzt Vanille, wird weicher. Ich gebe einen Tropfen Wasser hinzu, der schöne Duft ist weg, er riecht jetzt eher nach Nelke, wird würziger.

Finish
Comments

Ich bin zwiegespalten, unverdünnt riecht er klasse, ist mir aber zu stark zum Trinken. Verdünnt kann ich ihn trinken, aber der besondere Geschmack bzw Duft ist weg...

Nose

strong alcohol, wich disappears if you let the malt breathe for 30 minutes (adding water was not to my liking), cherry juice, fruity sherry, intense fruit tea, a touch of Vanilla, no trace of bitterness (was is it american oak?)

Taste

super sweet and fruity, you'll find the nose to its full extent, again there's not a lot of oak and although it's NAS I dont find sharpness or youth

Finish

long with those enormous fruity notes, dries just a litte

Comments

this malt is pure fun, amazing
