Clear and pure, the malt glitters in the glass, on the glass wall a number of long and tough drops run back into the glass. Sweet fruits such as apricots and mirabelle plums exude their sweet and fruity fragrance, a hint of vanilla rises from the creamy fruit note. Peaches and candied sugar show up, cotton candy and a subtle spicy woody note follow, the malt changes slowly and looks a bit grassy and flowery. A light freshness, probably mint, pervades the fruity and harmonious nose. Do I smell citrus fruits? In any case, the grassy note increases, the sweet sugar note is now discreetly in the background. During the nosing, I am always distracted by the almost syrupy streak on the glass wall from the oily drops dissolve in slow motion and lumbering down the glass wall.
Thin and with a fine spicy base note, the malt flows over the tongue into the mouth. Gentle, sometimes harsh wood tones rest on the tongue, slowly develop a subtle wooden sharpness and exudes her chubby warm mouth. Creamy wood elements and a touch of walnut I finish dry wood tones and leaves. The second sip is initially as thin as the first sip, but is creamier and gentler. Slowly, the sharpness creeps back on the tongue, this time is a pinch of black pepper and the heat and sharpness increases in intensity.
Tart wood elements and a hint of citrus fruit make the aftertaste appear tart. Grapefruit mixes slightly with wet leaves and old walnuts. A little burnt sugar and a slightly minty note are in the background, again a slightly grassy mouthfeel arises with a minimal menthol note. The mouthfeel is very creamy at the moment, but dry and slightly tart wood tones dominate the reverberation.
