Limited to a mere 246 bottles this is a very nice one indeed. A dark profile all the way. A nose with lots of flavours especially if you let it rest. Flowery, fruity and the typical tar and rubber. I have a tad of thyme as well. The palate is fruity with oak and smoke and it is spicy, really spice in a pleasant way. The rubber and tar is there again with a bit of chocolate. The finish is long, spicy and has some honey to it.

Nase: Neben dem Alkohol eine deutliche Marzipannote zu vernehmen. Zusätzlich Aromen von Gummi und Kräutern. Gaumen: Starker Alkoholauftritt, scharf, dann dominiert die Würze. Beiklänge von, Kräutern, Vanille, Früchten. Abgang: Es bleiben bittere dreckige Aromen zurück, Gummi und Würze. Fazit: Mehr Marzipan an der Nase als der große Bruder mit 65%, am Gaumen aber nahezu identisch mit den typischen Charakteristika. Es gibt aber intensivere oder vollmundigere Vertreter.
