Light caramel shines amber in the Premium Snifter, thick and oily "legs" are released from the streaks adhering to the glass wall. Oranges combine with a dash of cinnamon and a hint of creamy milk chocolate, hints of dried berries and grapes flash briefly followed by sweet apricots and velvety vineyard peach. Apples and tropical fruits exude their beguiling scent, sugar and sweet vanilla play with each other. The alcohol is wonderfully integrated, the nose extremely fruity with floral notes. Slowly my salivation is stimulated ...
The first sip flows thinly, with slightly bitter roasted aromas, over the tongue. Subtle sharpness tingles slightly on the tongue, tart apricot and peach come into their own. Pleasant wood tones support the floral and fruity aroma, the subtle sharpness flares up again and warms the palate. Little by little, the influences of wood become more dominant, a fresh mint note lies discreetly in the background, raisins mix with walnuts and a hint of eucalyptus.
Pleasantly warm wood tones rest on the palate, the dark walnuts are clearly noticeable in the aftertaste. The wood tones become drier and darker, wet leaves with dark walnuts are remembered for a long time.
