    I openend this bottle a few months ago and it feels that the taste has already deteriorated considerably. A pity, because what I remember when opening this bottle was definitely more flavours. Now I can hardly define anything anymore. It looks like the fruitiness has disappeared a little, I had the idea of having this more when the bottle was just open. Unfortunately, but the nose is still pleasant.
    • Nose
      Although it has a rather light colour, it has quite some sherry influences. Dried fruits, like raisins and plums. A hint of leather. Malty as well. A faint chocolate note, and some mocha in the background. This is followed by some citrus-like notes, mostly oranges. Later also a pinch of nutmeg.
    • Taste
      Quite thin on the palate. Seems to me that it could definitely use some higher ABV. Somewhat pungent. A bit of coffee, and some honey. It’s difficult to define. Mocha, dark chocolate. Fortunately, I still get some dried fruits later.
    • Finish
      The finish is short to mid-long, with some citrus. Coffee and dark roasted coffee beans, which makes it a bit bitter. Also mocha and dark chocolate.
