The palate is spicy and all over the place , balance wise at first, it does settle down with the fruit the nose hinted at being pushed in the background by the spiciness of the distillate.
Water does ease the spice note a little but it is still top heavy.
I like the finish, lasts for a long time, and it is only then as it goes down your throat that you can detect a semblance of any balance.
So in summary, a decent nose, a wayward palate but with nice flavours and a good finish.
I don't want to penalise the palate part too much as the flavours are ok, but the lack of balance is a negative for me.
