- Honey, fruit pickles, cinnamon, lemon peel, vanilla, melon, pear, peach and apple.
- Fun whisky to sip in
the sun, without overthinking it. Drinker’s whisky. Or card player’s
whisky. Dangerously easy, but for lovers of all things sweet.
Was 68 EUR, but is now completely sold out.
The nose immediately
makes me think of candy. A combination of toffee sweets that stick to your
teeth on the one hand and purple violets – sticking just as hard – on the other
hand. Loads of caramel too. A truckload of aniseed, hinting at salty liquorice.
Yes, this is a liquid candy shop. Some Golden Delicious apples and some
overripe apricots. A floral touch. Heathery flowers? All in all rather simple, but pleasant for one with a sweet tooth.
The arrival is soft,
honeysweet and mildly sour. The fruit from the nose returns, but a lot of
citrus has been added. Oranges? No, it is grapefruit. Candied no
less. Again a box full of toffee sweets. Boy, this is really
candy-like, my teeth almost drop out of my mouth.
The finish is not
very long, remains honeysweet, but offers some spices at the death in the guise
pepper and nutmeg.
