      Sharp start, a bit snappy, floral, cold ash, sweetness, pear, honey, apricot, alcohol, water makes it more pleasant.

      Without water too spicy, alcohol, fruits and flowers. Better with water here too.
    • Finish

      Rather short

    A young one.
    • Nose
      Chewy toffee, caramel and hints of lime.
    • Taste
      Waxy coating, ripe gooseberries and a touch spice.
    • Finish
      Dark cocoa powder, maritime notes, seaweed. Lovely aftertaste .

    I highly recommend you try this first with only a few drops of water and later with quite some more water. The difference is astounding. I prefer a healthy dose of water in this one.
    • Nose
      88 88
      earthy, cooked fruit, fresh pear, plum, malt, mint, wild honey, floral, heather, slight spice, cinnamon, vanilla, a little iodine, very slight peat, roasted barley, mash tun, some sour notes

      with some water I get much more fresh fruit, mint and some nuts
    • Taste
      86 86
      cooling, mint, fresh fruit, apples, pear, earthy, sour, lemon, sea salt, spice, clove, barley, slightly peaty, sweet, starch sugar, old blanket, lightly roasted coffee beans, iodine

      same here with some water: more fresh fruit, the other flavours step back quite a bit
    • Finish
      85 85
      musky, earthy, astringent, oak, 65% chocolate, spice, medium long

      the finish with added water is much more pleasant. Green apples, pear, lemon, sea salt, sweet honey, grass, iodine, mint
