    I feel reminded of a very good blend from the 1970s. Extremely successful, and only 12 years old? There has to be older stuff in there. Wow.
    • Nose

      Lots of honey and freshly squeezed apple juice from the varieties of my childhood. It unfolds a Sommerbl├╝tenwiese, then flavors that you can barely perceive like wet pebbles or Baltic Sea, and a restrained apricot brandy without any disturbing alcohol. This is an exciting thing!

      Gooseberry cake with ripe or canned fruits, pine oil, lots of honey, delicious! At the same time dry and slightly dry as well as sweet and round - because someone must have known what he did ...
    • Finish

      Consistently from A to Z, the finish leads the sensations from the nose and palate to a spicy, slightly tannin-containing finish.

    Different to the 40% version this one is fuller on the palate.
    • Nose
      More fruit than the 40% version, lemon, apple touch of lime, its all in there.

      Strangely I also gets notes od smoked cheese and some tobacco notes.
    • Taste
      Quite strong for 43.5% on honey, shortbread and hot crusty bread.
    • Finish
      Not to long on slightly bitter notes.
