    Room temperature when drinking: 18 ℃

    Viewing Eyes: light straw color

    Smell Nose: 75% medical alcohol, mint, vanilla, lemon peel, grass after rain, green leaves, wax plum, apple cider vinegar, a little peach, yeast dough, weak fat, my most annoying air freshener Okay, would n’t it be refill bourbon cask (white-eyed)

    Taste Palate: super sour, the middle part is a soft and soft lime oil sludge, and then quickly gasified, the milky smell of figs emerged, coconut milk, peach mousse, milk flakes, latte black rice milk, pepper, bitterness, a little salty . Suddenly warmed up at the end, the mouth was hot, and the tongue was numb.

    Finishing Finish: Long, Fanta Apple Soda, Green Apple Peel, White Grapefruit Meat, Licorice Water, Bark, Dust.

    Body: It has a bitter bottom and tannins. It is very rich in oil and fat, and it gets warmer and richer as it reaches the end.

    Nose: 84/100

    Palate: 87/100

    Finish: 86/100

    Body: 87/100

    Overall: 86/100

    Overall: This smelling smell almost dissuaded me :( Fortunately, the back played well, and the unpleasant smell was left behind. Apart from the burning of the throat, there is no sign that makes me feel that this is more than 60 degrees of wine.

    Metal, mineral, hay, marzipan, notes of young cognac, white plum, melon. Everything is very unobtrusive.
