    Dass es ein Blend ist erkennt man nicht unbedingt.
    • Nose
      Perfumed nose, very sweetish, lots of lavender, lots of violets. Sourdough, a bit malty.
    • Taste
      Mild start with nuts and orange slices. Caramel sweet, milk chocolate. Dry. Slightly tart herbs come after a while.
    • Finish
      Medium long and getting drier. Nut flavor and ground coffee, cooling and mentholig.
