“Kein ganz runder 98er, nicht so viel Bourbon -Noten, Alkohol nicht top eingebunden, leicht flacher, alkoholisch-dreckiger Abgang.”

“In der Nase aromatisch ansprechend und durchaus komplex, dreckige Noten treffen auf Holz, Gewürze und etwas Tabak. Am Gaumen recht bitter, dazu mit ausgeprägter rauchig-speckiger Note. Anklänge von Menthol und etwas Karamell im Abgang, gute Alkoholintegration. Wirkt auf mich leider bereits etwas überlagert.”
