Mahogany
Nose

Sofort verströmt er im Glas ein extrem fruchtigen Duft nach Kirschen, kombiniert mit einer Nussigkeit. Süßes Karamell, Feigen und Datteln gesellen sich hinzu. 

Taste

Starker Alkohol, aber trotzdem entwickelt sich eine fruchtige Aromenvielfalt. Die Fruchtnoten explodieren später förmlich im Mund, überwiegend Kirschen, etwas saftige Feigen und Erdbeeren.  

Mit Wasser noch fruchtiger und süßer, Eichenbitterkeit tritt hinzu. 

Finish

Die Fruchtigkeit bleibt, Kirschen und Feigen im Überfluss, Eichenbitterkeit, unglaublich langes Finish für das Alter. 

Comments

Für mich ein absoluter Hammer.

Nose

Viel Sherry, Toffee, etwas Balsamico, ein Hauch Salzkaramell, sehr süß und doch würzig und erstaunlicherweise beißt der Alkohol überhaupt nicht. Mit Wasser fast ein wenig flacher, noch mehr Toffee und Toffee.

Taste

Pur mit ordentlich Kraft, aber machbar, zuerst süß, Sherry, Toffee, dann erstaunlich herb werdend, etwas arg heiß und fast ein wenig bitter. Mit Wasser ändert er sich nicht so sonderlich, immernoch kraftvoll, noch mehr auf Toffee und Sherry, etwas zahmer.

Finish

zuerst warm, etwas bitter, dann wieder Karamell, Trockenfrüchte, Sherry. Mit Wasser merkt man auch etwas Eich

Comments

eine tolle junge Sherrybombe.

Nase: Kirschen, dunkle eingelegte Kirschen, wie in einer Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte, dazu Haselnüsse mit frisch geknackter Schale, dunkle Edelschokolade. Mit Wasser kommt Mandelnougat dazu, Vanille, etwas staubiges Holz, trockener werdend. Nach einer Stunde im Glas kommt noch massiv sonnensüße Saftorange, wow!


Gaumen: Pur trotz 62,5% trinkbar, warmer Kirschlikör, doch dann betäubt der Alkohol. Mit Wasser kommen saftige Rosinen, getrocknete Kirschen, türkischer Honig, Mandelcreme, ölig-saftig-süß zu Ende leicht pfeffrig


Abgang: Lang und würzig, mit Valrhonaschokolade und Kirschlikör


Fazit: Ein Kracher, für 8 Jahre eine Aromabombe. Die Jugend harmoniert hervorragend mit dem saftigen Fass. Ich denke, da kommen noch mehr Aromen, als ich sie hier beim ersten Kosten beschreiben kann, doch dass was ich jetzt schon habe, ist unglaublich lecker! Einziger kleiner Kritikpunkt: Die Nase ist ohne Wasser intensiver!
