Sparf (175) - Östersund, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Provdatum okänt. En tät, blommig doft med mjuka parfymaktiga toner. Mycket frukt och vanilj finns med i paletten. Mörkt tegelfärgad vätska och ett tätt skum med fina rester. Smaken är även den fruktig men här tränger sig vaniljen på och tar över alltför mycket. Beskan är snyggt avrundad och ligger kvar som en reminiscens i den långa eftersmaken. Alkoholen värmer med helt utan att störa. Mycket mjuk och varmt fyllig kropp.

Bottle(RBESG 2014): Reddish-amber coloured, hazy, small and stable off-white foamy layer; port, dried fruits, raisins, wood and alc in the nose; moderate sweet flavour; warming alcohol and some tannine in the sweet and also bitter finish. Not very exciting, but pretty good…
