- Raisins, peppery baking spice, sweet butterscotch, oak. Easy drinking and Canadian sweet.
- Pleasantly soft and sweet. Good as an aperitif.
Slightly musty-earthy at the beginning with a hint of apple. A touch of cognac. A little alcoholic. After a while caramel and vanilla and some wood. Overall, rather reserved and subliminal "musty".
Soft, creamy, sweet. Vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce or maple syrup. A hint of pepper, but quickly vanishes again.
Rather short, but at first sweet, then bitter with some oak.
- The cognac can be guessed at the nose and the finish, otherwise there is a lot of caramel in the taste. Delicious. Why not a Canadian? ;-)
bright chocolate and caramel; a slight brown bread note; dark plums; Brown sugar; with a little time, fresher notes of light apples are added; with time come aromas of dark spices; a slightly artificial sweetness mixes with it
very soft; Werther's real; delicious toffee and caramel; lightly fresh with a little pepper and nutmeg; again bright chocolate; again black bread; the alcohol is barely perceptible;
short; spicy at first, then it gets sweet; a little plum / cognac; At the very end, there is an orange note, reminiscent of orange-flavored water ice; in the end, the oak (or is it the alcohol) pushes for a long time;
- Call me heretic, but I like it a lot better than the Northern Harvest. Not that I have to have it more often, but he has a lot more character and is smarter.
Notes from an online chat tasting.
Many herbs, mint immediately, also reminds you of cognac. The mint turns towards the anise. The nose remains "cognacig", quite simple but it does not even smell so bad. Here again some sour cucumbers, but much less than the Northern Harvest, the krautige remains ahead. Gummy bears start flashing briefly, but never long enough to be really tangible. Ah, warm now, citrusy drops of lemon are that!
Quite thin, with the alcohol for 40% behind out after an extremely mild start has amazingly strong. At first a strange herbaceous conglomerate, difficult to sort but not really bad. Over time, honey and liquorice crystallize out, still with a herbal mixture. At the back he gets really cute. I only find faint notes with a lot of imagination.
Is also very sweet, almost sticky and relatively long, very late comes a slightly cooling hint of menthol. He also warms for a very long time. He backs up a soreness of the oral cavity, which is really reminiscent of bread dough.
black pepper, oak, fruits in the alcohol, a bit dusty muff,
a speck of fruit alcohol on the old storage floor
strange taste in the mouth, soft and velvety to the onset, pepper and mint, then cognac, on the palate slight sharpness
Apple stays on the palate, first sweet, then becomes a bit bitter medium
- Tasty, very tasty, flavor something special, with 50 € just fair prizes.
very unusual - a short touch of fruit gums, then dry woody, velvety, almost dusty, a touch of spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom), then creamy, caramel ... on longer then sugared orange with cinnamon, a little wood and pepper
very soft and velvety, sweet, toffee, caramel, after a long time on the tongue distinct notes of brandy, pecan nut, maple syrup, some licorice
long, soft, pleasant bittersweet, nut, some licorice
