Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonPleasant fresh milk chocolaty notes. Faint hints of a somewhat chemical undertone at first that disappears with water and time. Tastewise a bit edgy, lively, malty, vanilla, slight fruitiness. Quite difficult one that needs quite a bit of water and time to enjoy.
Oliver KlimekColour: Straw - Nose: Citrus fruit, apricot, vanilla, polished wood, hints of nuts and malt. - Palate: Malt, lemon zest, vanilla, ginger and pepper. - Finish: Long, fruity and spicy, even a little salty at the end. - Overall: Like ever so often the palate doesn't quite deliver what the gorgeous nose is promising. The wood spices are dominating the other flavours. The finish again is great.
