Color
Burnt umber
Nose

Color is Burnt Umber without the reddish touch - inbetween Tawny and Brown Sherry

Sehr sherrylastig, süß, dunkel, satt. Pflaumen, Fruchtsirup, Zeit bringt auch etwas Kräuter. Butter und nimmt allgemein die Süße. Mehr Zeit, mehr Butter und Kräuter, in Anflügen schon beinahe medizinisch. Auch die Pflaumen bekommen einen angegorenen Touch. Erwärmt wirkt er etwas hellfruchtiger, jetzt bizzelt auch der Alkohol leicht in der Nase. 

Taste

Doch recht herb im Geschmack, die Süße ist als dunkler Honig vorhanden, wird aber deutlich von Kräutern und Menthol dominiert. Das Mundgefühl ist fett, der Antritt mächtig, etwas scharf beinahe. 

Finish

Der Abgang wird zunehmend in dem Maße süßer, wie das Menthol abklingt. Insgesamt ‎recht lang, mit einer Erinnerung an Kräuterbonbons.

Comments

Hm, fällt mir spontan Glenfarclas ein. Viel Sherry und viel bitter. Haut mich jetzt nicht unbedingt um, ist aber auch nicht schlecht.

‎Notes aus einer Blindverkostung.

Gruß von hier...
