Delicious dram, really great palate and finish
Nose, neat: Vanilla, honey, apricot, nutmeg
Nose, with water: Spices appear, then honey and apricot merge together and reinforce themselves
Palate, neat: Spicy, really drying oak, cracked pepper, apricot and orange, really strong mouthful, almost breathtaking when you finally swallow
Palate, with water: More creamy mouthful immediately, some hints of dark chocolate, still really fruity but a bit less spicy
Finish, neat: long, on oak spices, orange, then slowly fades to blood orange.
Finish, with water: very long, sweeter, more on orange and apricot, a bit drying.
