“Subtle fruit on the nose, which comes across as less fresh than in other vintages. In addition, green herbs, tobacco, spices and medicinal-herbal notes. After some time in the glass, I think I detect a slight floral-spicy perfume note here as well. The nose shows a nice complexity and definitely makes you want more. On the palate, the herbs and floral notes become a bit more apparent, along with citrus freshness, light toastiness, and wood and spice. The bottom line is an appealing spectrum of flavors, which unfortunately remains too unbalanced for my taste. After tasting again, however, I round up slightly for the great nose and the basic aromatic complexity.”

“Franconian Tasting Gang am 10.05.2024 Zuerst ein großes Dankeschön an DomM, der dieses Set zur Verfügung gestellt hat. Mich persönlich hat es nicht abgeholt das Profil. Bis auf eine Ausnahme ist mir dieser Seifengeschmack too much. Die Reste aus den Gläsern sind aber dann dank DomM und Serge in einem spontanen und überragenden Cocktail gelandet.”

“This one is far more complex than the younger one and especially the wood is more present. I like the herbal, minty and tobacco touch it has. Not your typical Saint James. There is a kind of medicinal note I can't put my finger on.”
