- soft gentle red fruit with open fire, on taste full fire with ash, the finish is soft with red fruity ashes. actually what one could expect of a port-peat combination.
Smoke, slightly sweet, old shoe, behind it subtle fruits, a hint of lemon, (red) apple, then fresher with more lemon.
Roasted aromas, cocoa and water make the apple stronger.
Again, smoke, bite a bit (alcohol), then softer and sweeter. Sweet fruit, some malt.
With water spicy, woody.
Not too long, the sweetness remains and some oak resonates.
- A very nice dram that you can imagine in the winter in front of the fireplace, the alcohol is super integrated. And the nose is great.
But he is a bit too sour in my mouth, from the port keg the berry essence is present, but hardly sweet.
Densely interwoven with dark berries, slightly medicated herbaceous nature, greasy leather and some wet wool felt, and always comes concentrated candied fruit notes with dark fir honey. Makes a great impression.
Creamy and supple like Black Forest cake with a smoldering oak log, becoming quickly acidic towards the end, the whole thing.
Old wooden planks, which were processed with Brenneisen, echoes of espresso and at the end a bit calomelike bitterness, which after a while becomes wood tones.

- palate and finish are very disappointing after the excellent nose.
nice mixture of peat smoke and fruits. mostly red berries, black currents, cherry juice. eucalyptus leaves, hints of vanilla.
quite peaty. I think it smothers the fruitiness a little and the balance of the nose gets lost. what a pitty, the nose was really good. and it´s rather sharp when you sip it neat.
with water: a little better for the first few seconds but then the peat creeps in.
peaty and quite bitter
- high quality - spicy like an authentic
tender camp fire smoke, beautiful heavy port nose with dark fruits, blueberries, dates, mint, eucalyptus, vanilla, heavy spice
viscous, smoke, liquorice, salt, sweet slightly bitter port - well balanced with fine port acid, tobacco, chocolate, mint, pepper,
warming, very spicy, bitter sweet tobacco
