    Personally, I found the endgeil and the sample was rucki zucki empty.
    • Nose

      If you hold your nose a little farther from the glass, it smells like Haribo Cola. If you go closer, comes a dirty, fat Sherryote.
      White spirit, some oil and artificial lemon flavor. Acid cucumber water, moist tobacco, leather, some maggi and peppered orange. With some time in the glass comes cherry liqueur, chocolate and plum spirit. If the right air gets, the much sweeter with sugar-sweet forest berry jam. The fruit is now more in the cooked direction.
    • Taste
      Whoa ... what a spicy, sweet bastard. I'm up to it. The tastes really dirty. : Love:
      Now again for the lunch program ...
      Spicy, dry onset. Typical sherry flavors ... then ... Maggi, soup bouillon cubes, juicy orange, herbal liqueur, chocolate, some roasted almonds, tobacco, leather, sweetened herbal tea, cooked fruits. Becomes very creamy in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Long and spicy. This dirty charm remains and at the end much sweeter and creamier. At the end there is a taste of sweetened espresso and cherry liqueur.

    sergeColour: deep amber. Nose: an unusual one again. Starts with cooked vegetables
    and some wax, chlorophyll, marzipan, bitter oranges, walnuts… A little mud as
    well, leather polish… Not classic this time, the jury’s still out. Having said
    that, I adore these touches of hay and rhubarb wine that rise up after a few
    minutes, as well as the notes of elderberries. Mouth: ah. It’s earthy sherry
    this time, wilder than the others, with some tobacco, then a little Chinese plum
    sauce (for Peking duck), orange liqueurs, notes of leather, tobacco, chocolate…
    A little rough, maybe, but all remains very well in the best of worlds. Finish:
    long, a tad eau-de-vie-ish perhaps. Slivovitz-filled chocolate? Oak-aged sloe
    eau-de-vie (prunelle)? Comments: another one that’s just great, in my opinion,
    its just that some others were even greater in my book.
