It's first fill PX but according to the very light colour, it did not go into extremes. Phew. Colour: white wine. Nose: boy is it hot, raw and eau-de-vie-ish! Isn't this actually artisanal kirschwasser straight from an old Holstein? Also blackcurrant buds, hot porridge (50% porridge, 50% moonshine, a perfect breakfast), sour cherries, grape stalks… I suppose water would be mandatory here. With water: typical whiffs of rubber and paraffin, plus fresh leaven bread. This is really raw, but I rather like leaven bread. Mouth (neat): more raw kirsch spirit, this time with pears as well, raw wine brandy, marc… all that with a long cut. With water: there, garden fruits, around green plums and more sour cherries. A touch of lemon skin, green pears... Finish: medium, grassier. Stalks, stems and pips. Comments: totally raw style, with a PX that's as expressive as Bill Wyman. PX, really? Needs water.
