      Old sherry casks, light maggi, damp cellar, in the distance fruitiness.

    What a pity, very sulphury cask. 

    Nose: First raisins, but the sulphur notes develop quite quickly. Sulphur recedes a little bit behind sweetness after a while. Some grapes and cacao shine through and a profound minty note starts to carry the odour.  After 20 minutes the nose gets fuller but the sulphur doesn't fade way.Taste: Oily, a lot of mint, then foul eggs … bugger. With water: sweeter, more spicy, but … no. Doesn't work. There seems to be something interesting in there. But it doesn't make the way to the foreground. Sulphur is sitting on the lips.

    Finish: Guess ... with maltiness and a not rather juicy finish (dryness expected).

    This is a faulty cask I cannot recommend. 16/16/16/16 = 64 (happy tasting it via a sample)
