    Somehow there was nothing that would make him stand out or stand out. Although not missing notes but not that certain something. The (refill) barrel is holding back. Enables thereby also the Brennereicharakter still some stage presence.
    • Nose
      At first, vanilla and caramel. Then bright fruits. In addition, a slightly biting eucalyptus note that does not fade when diluted and after a while. A little later then butter biscuits.
    • Taste
      Powerful at the start. Just some oak and tropical fruits, light. Was he really in the sherry barrel?
    • Finish
      In the finish, the sherry keg storage makes the most noticeable.

      Honey, malty, oak wood, ripe bananas
    • Taste
      Oily smooth, malty, buttery, zesty, little citrusy and lemony
    • Finish
      Medium long, smooth
