    Can not fully convince, after quite pleasant nose, the palate can not fully convince. Departure with weak, not pleasant aftertaste.

    High expectations far exceeded! Does not have the ultimate complexity but for NAS absolute madness! From youth or the like, nothing is felt. Glen Els has created a very distinctive and, above all, promising style in terms of taste. I'm excited.
    • Nose
      very sweet and soft with vanilla, elegant, initially restrained, then some red wine and fruity sweet wine, fresh oak, creamy caramel in combination with malt, very slightly spicy, bread, butter biscuit, the vanilla combines with pleasant smoky notes, redcurrants, grenadines, Cherry juice, chocolate cake, salt, marzipan, raisins, cinnamon, strawberry compote, tobacco, walnut, also aromas of high-quality rum and apple brandy can be discovered
    • Taste
      fruity, soft oak, slightly spicy, very sweet, then a strong potpourri of the various wines from the barrels used with a tendency to blueberry spirit, malt, a lot of vanilla, toffee, plum wine, a lot of creamy mousse au chocolat, apple juice and excellent brandy, something Smoke, minimal bitter
    • Finish
      incredibly warming, again various fruity red and sweet wines, light dryness and spice, oak with vanilla and a bit of malt, pepper and ginger, toffee, cocoa, kiwi, hazelnut brownie, Ferrero Raffaello, again slightly bitterness, overall very long
