very intense, herbs, naturally massive sherry, red fruits, the main tone is floral, tobacco, nice spice, underneath there is some dark chocolate, caramel, somehow also creamy, very sweet, almost like cotton candy, the herbal note fades into the background with time , it definitely gets better with time, also mint, the alcohol strength is not unpleasant, but you can tell, freshly sliced cucumber as an undertone
with water and after the first sips also in the nose more sherry instead of brutal sweetness, slightly better
Here the alcohol is extremely pressing at the start, then comes massive sherry, sweet, red, cotton candy, red berries, dark chocolate, but mainly sweet, like a slap in the face with a candy cane, now fruity, slightly tart, also oak.
After the first sip to get used to it, it is better, now the influence of Oloroso can be perceived as such, nuts, plums, still sweet, but a little more in the background, a little dirt, caramel, and now sweet again
Water helps! Much smoother, more open, filigree, now really chocolate, raisins, right from the start, of course still quite sweet
still very sweet, it sticks right, red berries, fizzy sticks, sweet, sweet too, the mouth is covered, it lasts a long time, now I dare to name a strawberry, of course with sugar, with more time in between then suddenly hazelnut
