It starts off sweet and fruity. The smell is pleasantly soft and light. Citrus fruits like tangerines and oranges stand out immediately. There is also some malt and grain, as well as a clear herbal note that is difficult to classify. The sweetness gets a little more intense over time and reminds me more and more of honey. The citrus fruits are joined by bright fruits (especially pears). After a while, even a hint of oak becomes noticeable.
The general character is very similar to the nose, sweet fruits dominate. On the one hand, these are the citrus fruits mentioned above. There is also a very intense component that reminds me of fruit brandy (a mix of pears, apricots and peaches). Then comes the malt, as well as a nutty feel with hints of white pepper. A light taste of caramel hides in the background.
Unfortunately, the impressions quickly disappear from the tongue. The fruits will last a little longer, at least in the throat. The barrels bring a slight bitterness with associations of baking cocoa and cappuccino.
