Very well balanced on the nose, excellent nose to be honest, the finish was not bad at all but I was a bit disappointed on the palate.It was too soft. 46% ABV and non-chillfiltered might have added some more power to the flavor.
(Rating interval 80-84)
Dry sherry, chocolate, some solvent (oil paint) and slightly rubber. Complex spiciness on the nose, quite subtle, cinnamon and cloves I believe. Wonderful nose.
Mild arrival, subtle spices, really soft, some mixed spices and malt in the development but it's too restricted. Water doesn't really change it. Must be extremely careful with water since it's already very soft and careful.
The finish is bitter-sour, lemon rind and grapefruit, some wood spice and a bit savory. Water brings more intense oak in the finish.
