First impressions reveal a closed profile - light on cereal, high vegetative notes, citrus from lime that is a tad bit bitter. Time is needed to open it up.
15 mins in is too early to give an in depth review. Some wood lacquer, dried seafood.
30 mins in - The nose is more robust but still is rather hard on the alcohol, sweet flavours growing which reminds me of sweet green apple, honey, alfalfa/hay and hazelnut.
45 mins in - still closed but more opened; fragrant vegetation and earthy notes, boiled potatoes, hay again and freshly cut grass. Bordering along red plums, dried orange peel and leather.
Salty. Medicinal. Not mellow at all, the palate certainly does not complement the nose. Boiled pear, papaya, vanilla essence, dried out wholemeal bread that's been sitting outside for hours.
Time is all we need, characters remain closed and shy. There is this one flavour that constantly wants to pop out but just doesn't reveal itself fully, and that, would be burnt rubber or smoked salami.
Dry and medium, dies soon after. A intense nutty taste linger throughout the mouth till the end. It has that sensation where you eat too many peanuts and no matter how much you rinse your mouth, the sensation remains.
