"Winey, sweet, nutty. Just like I know it from Couvreur. But there is more behind it, because immediately there is an intense spice in the nose. A touch of lovage, a little more nutmeg. Cherries, wood sounds. And the alcohol content - atypically high for the Fleeting series - provides cooling intensity. Refreshingly different. I can perceive strawberries.
Water: I now have hazelnuts very intensely. It's getting drier. The fruit acid is a bit more penetrative. The whisky loses a bit of variety. "
"Very fruity and spicy at the same time. The alcohol content is a point landing. Still a little unripe strawberries that still lack a bit of sweetness. Some fruit acid. A subtle bitterness is indicated, which dominates the aftertaste when swallowed. The whisky becomes quite dry." Dark chocolate stays.
Water: Softer, more flattering. The unripe thing has disappeared, chilli chocolate appears instead. Water is good for the palate. The whisky is different. Now it's getting a little sweeter too, if I'm not mistaken. It is reminiscent of a sweet and spicy chili dip. "
Long, dry and fruity. An idea of bitterness remains.
