Nose: Golden raisins, cookie dough and quince paste. Candied figs and candied citrus peels, orange liquor and dried strawberries. It evolves nicely in time: Small wooden jewelry boxes, old woolen sweaters and pine honey. And starts to get a little tart towards the very end: Passion fruit and unripe apricots.
Palate: Sage tea, fresh rosemary leaves and unsweetened almond butter right away. Lemon curd and yoghurt... Very subtle toasted oak, strawberry tarts and pastry cream. Brandy soaked raisins and dried currants. A little thin in texture but changes so beautifully after allowing it to air for a few minutes. More citrusy and sweeter now: Orange marmalade, clementine and tamarind soda. Incredibly easy to drink... I am already on my third poor! Oh, boy...
Finish: Medium with white pepper, orange peel and sweet herbs: Marjoram and purple basil.
Overall: It is kinda unreal that I poured myself three glasses while I was tasting it... It is dangerously quaffable. Like I mentioned before it's thin on the palate but adds layer after layer of flavors if allowed enough time to open up. By the way this brandy is not in US yet but I have been told that it will be on the shelves in Spring 2021... And last but not least would you please take a little time to check the incredible design of the bottle, label and the box..? It's absolutely gorgeous... Thanks to Koray Kaan Özdemir a.k.a. Whisky Monster for making this review possible by sending me this bottle. Cheers my friends..!
