In der Nase grüner Apfel, aber nicht so spritzig frisch sondern eher Quitte. Eine leichte Seifigkeit. Metallisch. Leicht Keksteig. Und Vanille mit einem Hauch Melisse. Starker Antritt am Gaumen, einer Welle an Aromen, denen man gar nicht hinterher kommt. Und dann ist es auch schon wieder vorbei. Würzig süß, Lakritz. Liebstöckel bleibt. Insgesamt ausbalanciert.
