Without water: right behavior, clear alcohol. Sweet, yellow fruit, woody spice, some pine needles / resin, forest honey, with time come roasted almonds. Overall, not as "dark" and intense as the color would suggest. (initially only 85P)
With water: more fruit: peach, pear, apricot. Floral aromas, maybe some wax. Sweet pastries, butter biscuits. Overall, increasingly intense, fuller, oily in the glass. Resin / needles / forest honey are no longer perceptible.
He needs a lot of patience, which he then rewards. (87P)
Strong start, voluminous, the alcohol makes itself felt. Nice spicy, light bourbon fruits, pastries, malt - sweet, but not too sweet. With the time slightly bitter, oak, forest honey, caramel, coffee, possibly also some herbs.
The finish is unfortunately only medium. It leaves a creamy mouthfeel, some yellow fruit and some oak spice. Something "one-dimensional". For me the weakest side of this bottling.
