I like it really good but the ingenious nose is not quite reached in the taste.
You can play with water - but you do not have to. Time is more important!
Typical earthy / vegetal and very light smoky 90s GG-note, pencil marks, a lot of vanilla, light acidity, pineapple and subtle plantain, with time other bright fruits (pear and apricot), oak is already there with some slightly wet wood and seasoning, the alcohol is initially also very volatile but luckily with time.
With water more fruit and vanilla - now also honey. The earthy flavors go back a bit.
Surprisingly mild and creamy, toffee and vanilla, a hint of smoke and old oak, again a nice bright fruit mix, oh back there is now a huge spice with pepper and bitter oak.
With water even creamier, caramel candy with banana kernel. The spice to the rear and the oak but remain violent.
Warm, dry, mineral, charred oak and vanilla - fierce but quickly fading away and pleasantly relaxing in medium-length finish. The dry and bitter wood note dominates to the rear.
Here, water does not change anything.
