Playing with water is worth it - taste and finish benefit - nose less. However, it loses some of its funky character. So be careful with water!
Sweet and sour with plum fruit and a pinch of salt (umeboshi), sweet malt, a hint of hazelnut, lime, a bit of old wood (old barrel staves), alcohol is noticeable but not disturbing.
What a sour plum ^^
Water makes him tamer but unfortunately also more boring on the nose.
Creamy and slightly tingling, only vanilla and malt then comes more and more a hint of olive and nutty oloroso sherry and then comes full force of salt and mineral dryness. A somewhat meaty note is added (Umami) but compared to many others with a similar note, the Moray remains sulfur-free here. The plum is also back, but the acidity only becomes more evident in the finish.
Water makes it fruity and sweeter, softens the acidity - but becomes woodier (but pleasant)
The finish is medium to long. First this Oloroso and Umami note again, then becoming sour with salt and plum jam. Very dry with a slight bitterness towards the back.
Water makes the finish more pleasing and there is more malt sweetness - combined with the salty manzanilla notes and the pleasant oak transforms it into a really smooth drop. Also have the feeling of leaving longer with water.
