    A very highly rated grain.
    Still remains a grain.
    What this means for me in this case is that despite its extreme harmony and softness, it still has no outstanding complexity, because there is an intense sweetness over everything and thus kills many fine nuances.

    arbe:
    gold
    Nose:
    Fruity at first, with dull aromas of leather, dusty books, rye and a little underlaid fruit gum. After a little longer breathing, the nose becomes more intense, the aromas unfold even better and the fruit gum minute is almost completely suppressed. A mix of green fruits comes to light with avocado, lime, gooseberry, kiwi and hints of sweet pineapple juice. The nose is rounded off with fresh mint, dull leather, cardboard, vanilla and caramelized cane sugar.
    Taste:
    Spicy, sweetish, fruity and slightly spicy. Notes of wood stain, cedar, leather, salt, pepper, chili and turmeric - getting spicier. In addition fresh mint, notes of grain, malt, smoke and now slightly sour to the finish.
    Finish:
    Pretty long - still provided with a reasonable spice. Add tart herbs, stinging nettles, fresh mint and juicy wood. The finale is kept green with underlaid sugar.
