1st fill bourbon barrels
Like, dominant vanilla and lemon, but behind it both in the nose, and on the palate, behind these two flavors still much to discover. Alcohol is very well integrated, it also tolerates water very well.
NoseStrong vanilla and lemon. Very sweet and slightly salty. Behind it lies a slightly sour yeast dough note, together with malt and various garden herbs. Butter biscuits, banana and almonds.
TasteStrong start, silky mouthfeel. Starts very sweet with caramel, brown sugar and vanilla, then again very strong lemon, also that is very sweet, but at the same time also salty. The banana comes again. Then the oak slowly announces itself and becomes stronger and stronger.
FinishMedium. White pepper, oak, dark chocolate, mint and lemon. Astringent.
