    The port wine barrel has left typical notes and I have a few parallels to the Teeling Brabazon No.2 from Port wine barrels can discover.
    The entire tasting with information and photos:

    • Nose
      The flavors rise like a fleeting morning mist very light and almost floating from the glass, and what I can catch, I like it well. Especially a light berry compote with lots of sweet vanilla, as well as juicy juicy grapefruit and light vinous notes. Peanut oil makes it appear very voluminous, but a metallic flash reveals the young age. But despite all youthful discreet spicy oak wood is present. All in all, this is very easy and summery and without any junk.
    • Taste
      In the mouth he starts with a surprising aha effect. Much stronger than the nose suggests, it starts warming and with a nice ginger sharpness. Then follows a fruity sweetness with lots of red and black berries, mainly currants and slightly sour sour cranberries with a little vanilla. Light linseed oil ensures a nice oily texture again. Then it is quite quickly dry and slightly woody, tart spices such as cardamom, nutmeg and cloves are getting stronger and the mouth is increasingly drained. Everything is nicely structured, but a bit unbalanced due to the rapid change from sweet to dry.
    • Finish
      Sweetened currants and beautiful ripe grapefruit set the tone in the short to medium-long aftertaste, and the oak barrels are again accompanied by spicy notes of cinnamon bark, nutmeg and cloves, which make the finish drier and drier.
