“Für mich nicht klassisch Bellevue. Viele dreckige Noten. Erinnert mich tw. an TDL gepaart mit Monymusk. Konzentrierte Früchte, würzig, funky. Sehr gutes Stück.”

“This is a great release and I just love it. At release the price was very good compared to what you got. Leave it to rest for a good while and also try to add some water to release even more flavours on the nose. The nose is nutty with mango, menthol, olive, licorice and cinnamon with light wood trailing. The palate is wonderful and complex yet well balanced. Fruity with spices and smoky wood and licorice. The finish is very long with wood, spices and raisins.”
