Strong and deep dark, the amber shimmers out of the glass. The amber turns orange with a reddish glow. Long and oily streaks are slowly walking back down the glass wall. A great sight!
A wonderful peat note immediately mixes with fruity and sweet sherry flavors. The peat becomes more and more intense over time and then completely overrides the sherry flavors. Dark berries try in vain to blaze a trail through the sweet peat aroma, a subtle hint of smoke is noticeable. The alcohol starts to tickle my nose slowly, I imagine smelling orange flavors. I can smell for hours on this sweet and fruity peat nose.
Oak flavors dominate the first impression before the full load of peat discharges in the mouth. Short comes fruity sweetness through the spicy wood, then only peat follows. Slowly, tart oak tones are noticeable, a walnut aroma mixes with the now bitter peat. Wet leaves and earthy notes crowd through a subtle hint of smoke, a mixture of peat and harsh wood now dominates the taste.
Dry and dry, the finish begins. Spicy oak notes and fine peat flavors are zealous, a slightly bitter nut flavor is above all else. Again wet leaves and earthy forest soil. Again and again, fruity sweetness penetrates through the tart notes. The finish sounds slow and leaves a bitter aroma.
