Ich liebe diesen Eichenwald. Es gibt neben dem 1986 WIRD noch andere Einhörner. Man spaziert in einem sehr alten Eichenwald, frischer Harz in der Nase (der Stubenhocker könnte auch Klebstoff sagen), etwas Orange hält sich im Hintergrund, humusreicher Waldboden auf dem feuchtes Moos wächst. Im Geschmack setzt sich das Ganze fort mit einer angenehmen Bitterkeit für Holzliebhaber, getrocknete Früchte halten sich im Hintergrund. Zu viel Frucht würde hier das Flair des Waldes auch zerstören. Mit der Zeit im Glas kommen Leder und Vanille stärker durch. Der Abgang ist extrem lang anhaltend, ergänzt um Tabak.

Die Nase ist richtig gut mit tropischen Klebstoffnoten, Holz, erinnert fast an Guyana Diamond. Am Gaumen dann aber ganz schön bitter, fast nur Fass und Bitterkeit, quasi keine Frucht, dadurch fehlt etwas Komplexität.

I had expected this one to be far better than the first release, but it is kind of disappointing especially when looking at the price tag. Very intense and heavy from nose to finish and though the nose reveals more and more notes as it is rested, the longer it rests the more unbalanced the palate and finish gets. I'd say this bottle stayed for too long in the barrel and thus got "well done". Price to quality is very bad in my mind.

die Nase ist außergewöhnlich, schwer alles zu beschreiben: Bohnerwachs, Karamell, aber auch Klebstoff, Orangenschale, Pfeifentabak, Leder, getrocknete Dattel und Kräuter. Das gefällt mir wahnsinnig gut! Am Gaumen zächst Trockenfrüchte, Karamell und Leder. Dann übernimmt aber sehr schnell bitteres Holzfass und lässt auch am Abgang nicht mehr locker, bzw. es gesellt sich noch eine leichte Mentholnote und etwas in Richtung Kumquat dazu. Wäre der Fasseinschlag nicht ganz so extrem ausgeprägt, ginge es sicher in meine Top 5.

Einmal Holzsuppe mit Beilage - zwar sind da auch noch ein paar verhaltene Früchte, Gummi und Erdnoten, davon abgesehen ist der Fasseinfluss aber schon ziemlich heftig. Natürlich ist hier flüssige Geschichte im Glas, aber leider wurde diese Episode etwas zu lange geschrieben.

The nose is fantastic but the mouth is too biter, lost the fruits

I've heard this one was super woody..too woody. I took the 2003 first to get ready. Actually I really like this one too. It is very woody/dry/bitter/tannic, but it works. For me its not too woody. There's some fresh flavour like menthol and eucalyptus too. Lots of dark coffee and chocolate (which I adore in those states). A very long dry bittery finish. I reckon its not for everyone and the 2003 is better. I do love this one too.
