Nose: Hui, there's a lot in it. Cherry, mint and many herbs. I am waiting for the day when an old piglet with at first a really completely different odor profile delivers. Furthermore, I associate orange blood, red grapes, burnt caramel and an intense vinous-acid fruit and a lot of spice. After a while, associations of old moldy wood, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, lovage, walnuts, some dark chocolate and wonderfully integrated tart acid evoke grapefruit, plums and orange peel. In general, there is a multi-faceted plant note that appeals to me in the context of the overall aroma. After the first sip, the nose becomes even spicier, otherwise the aroma remains relatively similar. Taste: Soft, sweet red grapes are reminiscent of the port and are accompanied in the mouth by a strong but pleasant herbal note including roasted aromas. Mint, bitter almond aroma, sour cherry, plums and a musty oak note accompany the aroma permanently, until the very spicy, discreetly bitter musty oak tones gain the upper hand. Walnuts and green tea as well as orange peel, roasted hazelnuts, associations with leather and cigar boxes, old sour plums and cherries remain on the tongue. This musty oak note disappears just as fast as the other described flavors. The finish is really long, but not so much influenced by the bitterness as I would have expected at the age.
Conclusion: I had the sample already forever in the closet. I'm just wondering why I've been waiting so long. Maybe out of awe. The drop convinces me on the whole line. Why? He is special and certainly not for everyone but has such a high concentration of flavors that it puts a grin on my face. The flavors meet with me in black exactly. A drop to fall in love.
