What a fruit bomb! Tropical fruits of passion fruit, papaya, banana, passion fruit and pineapple in combination with a tart touch of black currant. In addition, slightly waxy honey with delicious vanilla, soft leather and only with accompanying mild spice. The wood is surprisingly subtle for 40-year barrel storage - excellent!
Wow - but also here completely different from the nose. It starts out fruity, but then quickly becomes spicier, tart and more woody. On the tongue rather dusty and fruity with garden herbs, good wood, salt, pepper and a little chili. These notes now completely displace the fruit. There are also hints of leather, cardboard and mocha. Towards the finish it becomes even more intense, fresher and drier - also top here.
Long - still spicy, fresh, a bit tart and enriched with bland wood parts. The fruit and delicate tea aromas are slowly fighting their way back here too. Soft, fruity and dull ending.
