    sample from a friend
    • Nose
      Candied and floral, like a bag of sugar, waxed flower petal nibs.
      Iris, lavender, and violets. A drop of lemon oil amid orange blossom
      honey. Faint hint of oak, very soft. Spun sugar. Well, you get the idea.
      (with water) Bright and more pronounced malt. Still honeyed and floral.
      Really a lovely and magnificent nose.
    • Taste
      Sweet, honey, floral, and flower wax. Spicy ginger and more forward oak.
      Rather sticky oil as well. Bitter mango, melon rind. Orange pith.
      Bitter tropical fruit (and lots of wax). (with water) The wax and ginger
      are drawn out more and the fruit fades. Less oily and sticky, but we're
      in the same territory here.
    • Finish
      A short-medium finish. Fairly straightforward on the whole, no surprise
      punches or flavors. It's richer and more flavorful, especially on the
      palate, neat. Water draws out the sweet malt on the nose. On the whole,
      this was special neat, and very good with water - and I really enjoyed
      the nose neat, but it didn't do the palate as many favors.
