Old and elegant, spicy and musty. As it opens, pleasantly sour floral and fruity notes, menthol grows, beautiful and increasingly waxy and metallic. Outstandingly rich.
With water: phenomenal, the flavours redouble! Waxy tangerines and lemons. Keeps getting better, with honey and yet more wax. Fragrant, sweet wood smoke.
Lovely, powerful but refined, pleasantly sour fruit. Mouth-coating and spicy.
With water: brighter and slightly fizzy.
Smoke increases, slightly ashy at the end.
