Dunkles Dörrobst trifft auf nasses Leder, Tabak und Rauch - sehr eindrückliche Melange mit diversen Reminiszenzen an andere Demerara-Stile, hier aber in nahezu perfekter Harmonie verschmolzen. Kaum zu glauben, dass ein solch ausgewogenes und vielseitiges Profil nach vergleichsweise kurzer Reifungsphase entstehen kann.

First off, I regret not having bought some bottles of this release because the price is just up there today if you find a bottle. Secondly, it's amazing how much flavour they packed into such a young demerara, wow. The nose is intense and well balanced with fruits, molasses, smoky wood, clove, tobacco, licorice and camphor. The palate is intense, complex, very well balanced and very oily with dried fruit, smoky wood and chocolate. The balance between sweetness and bitterness is virtually perfect. The finish is very long and lightly bitter with rubber, tar, licorice, grapefruit and light coffee.
