    I like it. I love it. Offers a varied interplay of various flavors, which assemble into a great picture. No miss notes, no failures. Simply a great malt.
    • Nose
      Very sweet, at the same time very fresh. Red fruits with a whole load of sugar on top, a hint of sulfur in the background. The alcohol is noticeable as a fresh note, but the malt is not alcoholic. Is there some leather in the background?
    • Taste
      Sweet at first, shortly thereafter the complete change. Yes, there was definitely leather in the nose, here you can feel it clearly. A slightly smoky, leathery and tart touch. The whole in conjunction with a little spicy oak. Then, with increasing time in the mouth again sweeter, it will fight the sugared fruits forward.
    • Finish
      Long finish, dominated by the smoke and the tart notes. The sweetness is still there, but no longer so tangible, rather goes over with some oak in licorice. The leathery smoky notes stick to tongue and palate, remains there for a long time. If you think that's it, then the very sweet oak will come through again and the impression of a sweet tongue coating will remain, while at the same time you will feel the warming malt in your throat, which will strike much harsher tones. Impressive! It remains at the end of an incredibly sweet mouth, you would like to take the next sip.
