Lemon meringue with notes of custard. Freshly picked grapes
Adding water, the lemon gets real strong yet brings along his oaky friend. Small whiffs of apricot on a background of tea
Sweet mouthfeel, very citrusy on lemon and custard, and almost grapefruit. There is this tea like/grapefruit like astringency drying out a bit. The mouthfeel gets creamy and thick
The astringency gets smoothed out by the water a bit to create a spicier, gingery and cinnamony kind of mouthfeel. It starts low and then explodes in a heaty and fleshy note.
The dram leaves with a flourish of fresh fleshy fruits, peach and apricot and no heat. The lingering fruitiness gets complemented by a green tea background. With water, the finish gets more heat and more citrus too. It's as if you bit into a lime, yet sweet. When that's gone the feel is all about meringue yet all over again this circling nicely back
