    N: Mild peppery & raisin-y with a touch of hot rubber when first opened. The next day finds it sweeter with apple blossom=apple cider>vinegar<crisp apple strudel<apple snow, cut apple and Galia melon with a sprinkling of toasted oats on top. Fairly innocuous besides that but those apples in all their forms are quite charming.

    T: Starts with a sour bite and doesn’t do much besides offering an tart apple pie in desperate need of sweetening & seasoning. There are attempts at a sharp grassy, oily-sour mouthfeel, neat. Water allows for a more forgiving chalky-dry, aspirin-like and waxy sour mouthful on dried grapefruit. Tough love.

    F: Savoury-sour with a mild [chemical] freshness, sweetening a tad with a reprise of grapefruit-y grassy apple tart/cider vinegar. Comes with an inoffensive coppery, peppery astringency throughout. Coppery, peppery stewed apple alongside a touch of limescale at the death.

    C: From memory, in the same ilk as Glen Grant’s 1975 5yo WB0. This one scrapes the boards for the nose and the second half of the palate [with water], but it’s tough love indeed.
