    86/87.
    • Nose
      Lime, almond, chili pepper, malt, grass, fig, tangerine and caramel. The caramel gets stronger when it breathes. Then also some apple, which increases when adding water. Eventually also vanilla sugar and a grassy touch.
    • Taste
      Malt, lime, caramel, fig, chili pepper, lime, tangerine and straw. Water releases some peat smoke, but also something 'green' that I don't like that much.
    • Finish
      Caramel, malt, apple, chili pepper and fig.
