"High strength alert! Colour: white wine. Nose: what should I say? Sunflower oil, limoncello, damp clay, sandwich bread, chalk, smoke, beach sand, roasted peanuts, paraffin… Once again, we shan't file a complaint here. Also whiffs of fresh dry Alsatian muscat – I swear I'm not dreaming. Please pass the white asparagus! With water: gets cloudy as milk! And this viscimetry in action… Chalk, Woolite, crumb, sourdough, a touch of gherkin brine, not unseen in clean HPs… Mouth (neat): as often, the very high alcohol makes it sweetish, almost bonbony, all that with a very thick body. Marshmallow vodka. With water: it's funny that I would find white asparagus (no muscat though), chalk, lemon, a lot of fresh bread, some salt, oysters, a little lemon oil, even weissbeer, and all that jazz that we enjoy so much. Finish: long, tense, vertical, really rather salty, with an aftertaste on some kind of salty and smoked grapefruit liqueur. Comments: sure you'll need your best pipette, but then it'll deliver. Just excellent.
