Neat: Some tropical notes, like mango and papaya. But it’s unbalanced, ”spirity” and wants to be everywhere.
With water: Well, water balances it up. Some red berries finds it was in there, together with the tropical notes. And yes, some granny smith apples (maybe it’s just be because I think I feel it due to the calvados finish).
Neat: Just sweet, feels thin. Some honey and apple peel.
With Water: Fresher, and gives it a little push in the right direction. Apples again and oranges.
Neat: Honey sweet, medium long and with wood sours (and not very pleasant ones) following through.
With water: Cleaner, with the same appely and tropical notes you find in the taste.
