Wine barrel that has probably been used for a long time has done a great job here. In and of itself, I really like notes of old wood and musty muff in whiskey. But here the sour, fermented aromas are clearly too much of a good thing for me.
NoseFirst of all, the medium-golden Irishman needs plenty of air to clear the biting nail polish remover. At some point, accompanied by a diffuse fruit cloud, Toffifee sweets manage to fight their way out of the acetone cloud. Apricots, light raisins and grapes emerge and are reminiscent of dry and tart champagne and fruit gums. Even these cannot stay in the center of attention for long, because then sour-sweet, moist straw and buttermilk come forward with a little vanilla sugar.
TasteModern oak and champagne acid attract attention in the taste, a little vanilla and malty gray bread mix with fruit candies without being able to completely mask the initial impressions.
FinishPineapple fruit candy, malt and a little vanilla also try to score again in the finish, but here too, modern wood and slightly fermented grapes quickly gain the upper hand.
