    All in all, a tasty malt, flawless but quite simply knitted.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Immediately after pouring the first sherry, the buttery variant. After a while the acid first dominates, slightly chemically towards disinfectant. Right behind are juicy peaches and fresh caramelized popcorn. Later grated apple. Incidentally, the acid has now disappeared. Heated are added mineral notes, Nasser rock, then cotton candy later. All in all, it's pretty restrained.
    • Taste

      In the mouth there is again a good dose of pepper here. The mouthfeel is pleasantly oily. Honey sweetness and caramel are right at the front, there's a portion of slightly bitter herbs at the back. Above is a gentle menthol note. Of fruit, however, no trace. In the second sip, the oak is then clearer, even in the finish.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is also relatively short, starts quite dry and then slowly sweeter, a starchy sweetness.
