- NSS 2007 55.5%
This one is very close to the North Star 2007 @ 55.5, but edges it and wins overall
noses well at full strength. textbook! loads of samphire, mojito, lime zest, peaches, white grapes, little pineapple, chalk and icing sugar. something sweeter there too, rum and raisin? less kerosene than NSS 2007/55.5% but it's there, but more on chalk, and some tangy apricots in pastry.
laser-like citrus and minerals. quinine, samphire, sea spray, fuzzy peaches, something kind of petrochemical-rotting veg (in a good way), would that be ethylene? with water it gets sweeter up front and shedloads of chalk and icing sugar in the finish.
