    lacks a bit of complexity to me.

    Room temperature when drinking: 18 ℃

    Viewing Eyes: Orange Gold

    Smell Nose: Preserved fruits, dark fruits, black currant jam, dried plum, sour taste of hawthorn peel, fermented sour taste, dry-to-fried wheat grains, compound wooden spices. Underneath is a toasted caramel shell, maple sugar muffins, brown sugar buns, and fresh cream double. The smell is fuller and the aroma is strong.

    Taste Palate: the front is cinnamon, turmeric powder, coriander and other spices, floral sachet. Moderate spiciness in the middle, creamy plum, sweet dried fruit, nut shells, salt-baked wood

    Finish: Long and rich, steamed red dates, cinnamon, star anise, nutmeg, tonka bean and other compound spices

    Body of the wine: light, full of oil and fat, weak firmness

    Nose: 83.8 / 100

    Palate: 83.5 / 100

    Finish: 84/100

    Body: 83/100

    Overall: 83.6 / 100

    Overall: the sense of layering is a little bit, but the outline is still blurry

    Spicy Rye .... you can drink, but you do not have to. Granted, I'm spoiled by non-comparable bottlings.

    Neat this is both quaffable and good, but I can imagine this being God’s gift to bartenders. Even I feel the urge to get to work with this on a nice cocktail.
    • Nose
      Sweet nose on loads of vanilla, but upholstered with flowers on the hand hand, and nail polish remover on the other. Quite creamy and soft though. Toffee kicks in with a vengeance.
    • Taste
      The spices arrive first on the palate (black pepper, cloves and a truckload of cinnamon), followed by caramel, honey and toffee. Somewhat drying on menthol.
    • Finish
      That continues in the medium long finish: menthol and spices. This fades gently to leave the mouth dry.
