I like this more with water, so this review is with water.
A little bit stingy in the nose. And alcoholic menthol is quite present even after some time. It does open up though to vanilla, candy, light chocolate, raisins and a nice Berry sweetness (strawberries) but it stays stingy. With a better balanced nose this rating could be 2 points higher for sure.
Starts out with vanilla and caramel, also a funny sugar sweet note. This then gives way for chocolate and a light oak bitterness
Very long. Confirms the taste but it is even more bitter and more chocolate. The sweet note is almost gone and it is replaced by rasberries, cranberries and sour cherries also quite a strong oak influence but very good indeed.
