A wonderful, floral aroma with those citrusy overtones one finds in orange blossom essential oil combined with the dry woody as well as sweet hay and barn yard nuances made this a fascinating nosing dram. The taste was equally impressive, thick cut marmalade, lemon vanilla custard slices, chocolate almond butter bars and Gulab jamun. After the addition of water remained very elegant, buttered croissants, apple turnover, marzipan, lime zest and maple syrup on fluffy American pancakes. Syrupy and spongy on the palate like Anton Berg delicate biscuits with an apricot jam centre and marzipan soaked in brandy and finally covered in a thick coating of dark chocolate.
