I thank Arne Wesche from Whic.de for the sample!
Shy at first. With time, sweet and slightly floral notes develop on the nose with vanilla, butterscotch and a pleasant fruitiness of apricots and peaches. Hints of pepper nicely linger with oak, hey and grassy notes in the back. The alcohol is always present but by no means pungent.
Rich and voluminous on the palate! Delicate vanilla and sweet barley sugar mixed with cereals and fragrant yellow fruits - apricots and peaches. This is accompanied by a fairly warming spiciness of oak and nutmeg, with a hint of earthy notes in the back. Lovely mouthfilling!
The finish shows medium length with nicely warming flavours of spiced oak. Sweet and tender fruity with vanilla, apricot jam and a dry touch of chocolate and hints of salt on the tail.
WITH WATER: Water tames a bit of the sweetness and fruitiness on the nose bringing more spiced oak and hints of tobacco leaves to the fore. Creamy, sweet and tender fruity on the palate with a significantly tamed warming spiciness. The finish is a bit shorter but shows lovely sweet, malty and fruity flavours with a touch of earthy notes, tobacco leaves and spiced oak on the tail.
