Bright copper is dull in the Premium Snifter. From the streaks adhering to the glass wall, a multitude of small drops are released and remain for a perceived eternity adhere. Nutty flavors appear creamy, while dark apricots and tangerines join sun-drenched raisins, while caramel and old toffee create a sweetish touch. Freshly sawn wood shavings and an intense alcohol content provide for tart elements, the nose is surprisingly minimal salty and musty mossy. Loamy soil and wet soil, decayed wood and an emerging herbal note put the nose in a different light after a few minutes. From the first fruity impression is almost not left over, it now dominate dark earth tones, wet clay soil and decayed wood which is somehow interesting ...
Mild, with a strange herbal and spicy note, the first sip flows through the mouth, hints of caramelized sugar and wonderfully dried fruit flavors caress the palate before another strange aroma composition is put together. Slightly bitter bitter tartness on the tongue, fermented fruit aromas end in decayed brushwood and foliage, earthy forest soil mixes with hazelnuts and tart herbs. A touch of thyme and rosemary follow, as well as a slight hint of smoke paired with raisins, old apricots and abrasion of grapefruit peels.
Herb and sometimes bitter stick slightly smoky wood tones on the palate, the musty and decayed soil does not let up, as well as the "strange" herbal and spicy notes.
