Nose - banana, fruit orchard, bubblegum/opal fruits, faint vanilla, distant citrus
Palate - The fruit is there, but the % alcohol too high to fully express itself. Needs water (takes a lot of water), goes vegetal (green peppers) but water also brings out some quite significant sawdust. Some mild bitter tannins/tea at the end.
finish - medium to long, bitter, fruit is struggling to hold on here.
Just at the end there was rather more fruit coming through, and things weer getting a bit sweeter - I think this one needs time to develop in the glass, and I rushed it a little. I still have half the sample left - will return to this.
