Slightly bitter lemon, iodine and hickory smoke greet the nose. Strong flavors, no kicker. Already at the beginning I am willing to bite directly, there is everything in the bouquet, sour, salty, sweet, umami and a touch of bitterness, beautifully interwoven, nothing stands out, no alcohol. I am curious what is still in the mouth. First let stand ...
Even after a good 20 minutes, nothing has changed here in principle, the smoke goes back slightly, I find wet lime and sun-drying algae, the acid has become a little stronger and moves away from the lemon, now looks more artificial. Every now and then a cloud of caramel rises, a few crumbs of nutmeg I think to find.
When heated, the acid goes back massively and looks more natural again, but the mineral notes come to the fore, in addition I smell sushi, beet syrup and freshly cut meadow herbs. An unusual change!
Alcoholic mild, sweet, dark honey with smoked meat and a good portion of pepper, a distinct bitterness develops and on the palate a little acid pulls up, rocket with lemon juice. On the finish, there are also salty notes, salt caramel. Yes, everything comes from the nose in the mouth. The mouthfeel is quite dense and a bit oily.
The finish is not overwhelmingly long and rather a gentle fading of aromas, in which the tannins in front and the acid on the palate take over the main roles. At the end, a slight sweetness of the tongue remains, which brings a bit of ashen, but rather reminds of bread.
