best tasted undiluted. Around 130 EUR.
It offers a round and
sweet nose on hazelnuts and almonds with a truckload of butterscotch. Pine
cones. Orchard fruit. I am reminded of Sirop de Liège. The malt shines through
as well, while the oak keep sits head down. Wonderful nose. Adding water makes
it somewhat more green, if you know what I mean.
On the palate, the
fruit is rather from the citrus variety. Mandarin and bergamot. The wood speaks
a little louder and adds a nice spiciness (ginger, pepper and some cinnamon).
Very fruity and sweet. Nice continuation of the nose, I must say. A little
liquorice and vanilla join the party. Diluted it becomes sweeter still, but in
my opinion not better.
The oak has the final
say in the medium long finish.
