I like it
Indeed to say that I am sat outside in the garden so nosing is not under the usual conditions and my aromatherapy senses might be a bit off, that is my excuse anyway :)
Massive cereal note hits you first then lemon rind & pith.sour dough bread, breadsticks, but then the lemon again but with an almost chemical side to it?
Mango appears next, and if other said ,Del Monte fruit cocktail full of pear, apple peach, mango that sums things up nicely, this is really expressive.
This has a syrupy sweetness about it on initial tasting and my first impression is a good one
This is really vibrant and also has heat in your throat.
Lemon sherbet sweets, puff pastry but the balance is not there, still a little raw for me, so will add a little water.
The sweetness reminds me of the coating on sugared almonds.
With water I think it is better, the hot alcohol harshness goes, pretty much everything else is the same but the fruit develops more on exotic summer fruits in syrup.
The palate is really fresh which gives the liquid and extra edge.
After 10 minutes with a little water, a spice note appears, almost peppery.
The jury is out here, there is a pleasant warmth to it but the fruit cocktail flavours have vanished, with water added.
I will try it neat again and with water.
ok so my first impression was wrong, the finish has an almost medicinal quality to it, no rough edges, very nice.
