“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.”

“Nose: In addition to the alcohol, a clear note of marzipan. In addition, aromas of rubber and herbs.Palate: Strong alcohol appearance, sharp, then the spice dominates. Accompaniments of, herbs, vanilla, fruits.Finish: Bitter dirty flavors remain, rubber and spice.Conclusion: More marzipan on the nose than the big brother with 65%, but on the palate almost identical with the typical characteristics. However, there are more intense or full-bodied representatives.”
