Much heavier and complex version when compare to the 2004 distillate.
While the initial puffy smokes do not stays long...just like the old
version, but this 2015 offers a lot more complexity on the follow thru
with charred citrus peel, petrol, wet branches and decay salted smoked
fish notes built up overtimes.
P- Gentle, light with honey,
slightly too fruity. Rather thin texture with drift of phenol. Would
prefer a bit more robust wood influence build into this.
F- Medium, burnt hay, mild spicy, bitter-ish with prickly dry and chewy spirits. Raw at first, but got better it go on.
