Tried it both with water and neat. I prefer it neat.
Mild on the nose.
I get the alcohol, but it's not overwhelming. Perfume, ripe pears and marmelade.
First a punch of alcohol, then a slight medicinal taste and then a bowl of Kellogg's Frosties.
Long and full of honey roasted (almonds?), it's dry on the back of my tongue and the roof of my mouth.
Another day: the finish reminds me of buttered toasted bread with marmelade and it just keeps on lingering. Wonderful.
