    • Nose
      First of all a lot of malt and grain, but not as sweet as you often have. Grass and hay notes are added. I have to search for the fruit notes a little, but then I find lemon and pear. Clear alcohol, I give it 3 drops of water. Now a honey sweetness comes up, and the grassy notes become much more herbaceous.
    • Taste
      strong start, silky mouthfeel. It goes off on the tongue, first strongly sweet with honey, vanilla and white chocolate, then briefly the pear from the nose, and already a strong pepper note with citrus freshness takes over.
    • Finish
      Medium length, nice oak note with nougat and milk chocolate. White pepper, some lemon. Astringent.
