In addition, the beginning of the bottle was rather frightening, relatively uninteresting and one-dimensional. Fortunately, time and gradual "oxidation" did a good job again.
Absolute ex-sherry classic. Milk chocolate with hazelnuts, dates, cane sugar, cane molasses and milk caramel (Toffifee). Also slightly musty. Furniture polish. Some herbs, especially lovage. Celery and parsley leaves. Maybe a pinch of dill.
After adding water, the smell changes significantly. Wet sawdust, honey, incense stick. Preserved apples.
Distinctive alcohol. Very strong orange peel. Strange lacquer taste. Hazelnut, (milk) chocolate, woodiness. Caramel liqueur, caramels. Ginger tea. Cane molasses.
The addition of water dampens the prominence of the alcohol. Boiled root vegetables. Orange with honey. Lemon jelly. Dandelion honey.
The orange peel persists. Overall bitter-acidic and rather dry. Still strong alcohol. Cocoa beans and coffee beans. Tannins.
It thickens after adding water. Orange jam. Pea porridge, boiled lentils. Boiled celery. Cocoa.
