We took place in a wooden shelter in the forest of Asgaard and feasted on all its glories. The nose brought us green apples, pears, a hint of coconut, vanilla bourbon custard and a sweet smell of a Haribo candy factory. Some distant waxy citrus notes blended with the pine and oak trees. On the reduced nose, we went overboard in tropical fruits, berries, pineapples, sour apple winegums with the delight of sweet tobacco to finish it off. The palate was chewy with spiced wood bitterness, cornflakes with vanilla and a hint of pepper, the dessert came after a while in the shape of freshly baked applepie. We finished the feast with a cocktail party, as the reduced palate invites us to drink limefruit mescal, tropical sangria, bitter herbs and mint in Irn-Bru. The finish was as we expected, as mighty as the Gods of Asgaard – Powerful!
