    NOSE:
    First I found the nose very interesting ... because it is full of furniture and freshly sawn wood in the hardware store ... I love these smells ...
    There is also a spice note. But I totally miss a certain degree of sweetness ... still a nose that captivates me.

    MOUTH:
    ... and then the first sip ... BAD! ... I have a dill note in my mouth, which for me is not just a note, but does not make me taste anything else.
    Now I have to say I HATE DILL !!!

    The dill in the mouth is completely in the nose after the first sip ...- it doesn't go out anymore ... combines with the, previously great for me, wood note and gradually destroys it completely.
    This made my first sip the last one ... and I was glad that my dealer of confidence was so surprised or fascinated by my description of what I had just experienced in the shop that he wanted to try it and the key-dram was gone afterwards ... (- he also had the dill by the way)

    DECAY:
    ... I can't say anything because I had to rinse with water immediately.

    CONCLUSION:
    If you don't have a problem with dill, it may be worth trying and exploring it ... but for me (unfortunately, after the nose was really perceived as fascinating) it doesn't work at all.

    Since I think that my personal dill hatred played a big part in this ... I do not give a countable rating ... because that would tear down the overall value quite a bit and would not be really representative, because it is extremely subjective influenced.
