    • Nose
      Lush and a bit old-fashioned start. On the one hand floral notes of grass, flowers and roses, on the other hand also oak, mineral notes, bitter almond oil and pithy grain. Citrus zests, whitecurrants, kitchen apples, yellow cherries and Zibarten follow with some time. Really beautifull. Fragrant with a bit of water and very fragrant with almond cake, honey, dried apples, flowers, malt and cedar wood.
    • Taste
      Very enjoyable for grass, fragrant bitter almond, bittersweet apples (Pomme Dor), flowers and a hint of smoke. With some water finer and floral. Grass, roses, loess, yellow cherries, Pomme Dor and bitter almond.
    • Finish
      Long and dry with malt, bitter almond and a hint of smoke.

    the first nose was so promising, then he is only one of many - I do not have to have as a large bottle
    • Nose
      Honey meets oak, beautifully oily, citrus, grass, light wood, bark, herbs, when he stands something he is very sad
    • Taste
      fresh lemon, pineapple, mint, oak, pepper - soft mouthfeel,
    • Finish
      Quite short, spicy wood with a slightly bitter aftertaste, lemon peel
