    Spicy, beautifully complex dram, where the different flavors sometimes stand in the foreground, sometimes in the background. You can spend a lot of time with it.
    • Nose
      Slightly salty, dark chocolate, macadamia nut
    • Taste
      Sweet compote from sour fruits, briefly flashing floral aromas and are also gone again. Then comes a subtle smoke and wood of sherry casks. The nuttiness and salt accompany the other flavors.
    • Finish
      Long finish. Light, salty smoke (Longrow?) Remains.

    Interesting Dram, which requires some time in the nose but is almost tasty in taste.
    • Nose
      Strong start. The high alcohol content is noticeable. Sweet. Raisins. Wood. Initially quite difficult to arrange due to the intense impression. Over time, sweeter and tastier with white chocolate and popcorn.
    • Taste
      Very creamy and powerful. A whiskey to chew. A lot of caramel. But also very spicy. Nuts. A touch of bitter almonds.
    • Finish
      Medium long and mild. Some oak.

    • Nose
      Nice, subtle smoke flavor. Leather, some salt, waxy body, hay, caramel, rather light fruit, alcohol is well integrated. Makes itself felt only by a cool note. Ripe apricot comes through, some honey I would say, as sweet I would not call it, rather harsh. Slightly sour citrus fruits. Nutmeg, plum.
    • Taste
      Spicy, slightly smoky onset. Then fruity sweet. Honey comes, marzipan, plum, some bitter pear, subtle nutty, bit acidity of citrus fruits. Goes without problems without problems. The alcohol pushes along well. With water: Significantly fruity, but the smoke goes back a bit. In the taste, then almost too mild.
    • Finish
      Medium long, dry, but also honey sweet, a bit bitterness and a breeze of smoke. Slightly mineral.
