Nose: Without water: Fresh fruit like peach, apple, pear, pineapple, mandarin and lemon, vanilla, cake, pudding, fresh grass, green tea, whiff of eucalyptus, some sweet spices like clove and nutmeg. With water: more sweet, vanilla, cake, cream, more light fruit and less spices.
Taste: Without water: quite feisty and sharp. Some fruit, sweet and spicy. Quite thin body. With water: much better now. More calm and smooth. Sweeter, more fruits, vanilla and less spicy.
Finish: Without water: More bitter and dry now. Fruits become more like marmalade or orange peel, stronger spices now, pepper. With water: More clean and fresh. Fruitier, smoother spices, less dry, mild peppery linger.
Note: Better balanced with some water. But adding too much and you'll lose some flavor and the spices surface more again. It's a nice fresh summer whisky, but with a spicy kick. It's a sniffing whisky for sure. Could sniff this all day ;-)
