      First impression, thick and woody. Some greenness appears here, parsley and herbal notes. Unsure, but a very complex multitude of herbs. Like entering a chinese medicine store.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Lots of oak here, but seemingly mild. Pine cone freshener scent like taste, dry tree bark, herbal mix, angelica sinesis herb, rhubard and lingon berries.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium to low, slightly oily,bitter from the oak, damp.

    A malt that gives you time in the glass always new facets, would be desirable a higher alcohol content. Due to the slightly weak taste only 89 to 90 points nose and finish 91 pts.
    • Nose
      At first, notes of basil or parsley come in - easily after garden herbs. With some air, it develops in a more earthy direction combined with pine needles. Later comes notes of marzipan, maybe sandalwood and some incense sticks. Underneath there are also buttery notes with furniture polish.
    • Taste
      due to the low alcohol content, it does not come with so much whopping, first of all come spices, possibly nutmeg?
    • Finish
      peppery and slightly numbing like after chewing Szechuan pepper grains, long-lasting without becoming bitter.
