intensive spicy aroma. Good balance, but uncompromising. Sensuous, and
deliciously lingering with a splash of water.
I thank Dailydram.de for the sample!
Very strong on the nose. The alcohol is quite present here but not
pungent at all. Behind that curtain there's delicate yellow ripe fruit
coming through with apricot and some orange blossom. Slightly oily with
malted barley and candied peel, along with gentle spice, white pepper
and oak. Subtle briny with a whiff of camphor and lingering smoke.
Rich and intense. Pleasant fruit juice with apricots and oranges and a
subtle touch of bitterness, maybe pink grapefruit and lemon. This is
complemented by strong spicy flavours of oak, cracked black pepper,
cloves and nutmeg. The oiliness' giving a mouth coating texture. A
slightly salty touch with lingering nuttiness towards the finish.
The finish is medium long, smooth and sweet with sticky floral honey and a spicy dryness of pepper oak and a whiff of smoke. WITH WATER: There's more coastal notes with briny flavours on the nose,
complemented by malted barley and a slightly bitter fruity aroma. Rich
and intense on the palate with sweetness, delicate fruit and massive
spice of pepper, oak, cloves and lingering smoke. The finish is long and
warm, spicy with a coastal touch on the tail.
