- Good. Harsh and alcoholic, but lively and diverse.
Definitely go bourbon lovers of excerpts.
- This needs a LOT of time... but it`ll reward you.
Transferring previous Note (2011.12.11) content into a Tasting Note.
First: green grapes & (unripe) net melon, dusty white
chocolate/couverture, oak (maybe a tad too much), a tad mineral,
vanilla, also some grassy-ness, malt, cinamon, (85)
sweeter after a bit, now as well notes of coconut, vanille kipferl
dough, canned peaches, lemon & honey, a sprinkle of rose water, oak
integrates much better, (88)
quite alcoholic feel, malt, honey, distant bees wax and a bit mineral, (83)
(+60mins): alc seems to have retreated, now a very nice upfront fruit
& vanilla sweetness plus some malt and the right portion of wood
then some red apples, more honey and a bit of
wax, some cereals, vanilla, (85) some very pleasant faint & elegant
notes standing for a while if given enough time and a fresh palate. If
these come through = (89). But these seem to be a bit fickle...
now coconut here as well, the fickle notes develop and come to the
fore, but not much complexities going on as before, even though (or
because) they were faint, rather a pleasant fade out. (88)
Much later: there`s even some nice beeswax & pepper. (92)
