Torf kommt sehr süß mit starker Öligkeit, Sherryfrüchten im Hintergrund, Beeren in Erde vergraben, Kaminasche, Salz, Zitrusnoten auch dabei

Finish

Mittel bis lang, trocken-erdig, Wärme und Süße bleiben, etwas Sherry im Hintergrund

Comments

Interessant, manchmal ist der Sherry stärker, mal schwächer, mir zuviel Torf.

Boom ! Fruits cuits, soufre ! Intense ! C'est un Uberach ? Fumée et orge les rejoignent. Cendres froides, maintenant. Et du poivre. En bouche : sirop de cendres Monin ! Ça vient de sortir ! Et ce malt poivré. Quelle intensité !

Enthousiasme 4/5
