    Aroma:
    aromatic and fruity with hints of orange and vanilla, light wood notes, has deep, perfectly integrated alcohol
    Taste:
    full-bodied, tingling and burning, warm, with power, fruity notes, warm wood aromas, oily, sweetish, also slightly orange here, slightly spicy with slightly tart cask note, some dark chocolate, oak aromas, hint of smoke.
    finish:
    first fruity then slightly tart-sweetish, slightly dry, slightly orange, fruity component, delicate oak notes.

    * with some water:
    Aromatic, slightly fruity and fresh, has deep, sweetish, pleasant, slightly vinous, hint of vanilla, butter cookies with some apricot / peach jam,
    inviting, you do not notice the age ...
    Warm, slightly spicy, sweet-tart, fruity and slightly perfumed, light barrel note, touch of coffee, still slightly spicy, tolerates water well too much of it makes it a bit more tart ...
    When sipping the sharpness comes again, tart to slightly bitter with oak, slightly astringent ...
    Herb-sweetish-tart, slightly astringent with delicate oak, slightly barrely, slightly sweetish, medium to long-lasting.
