    • Nose
      dry smoke, dry oak, dry grains/cereals, powdery/mealy, sweet, vanilla, honey, oriental spices ( curry, cumin, safran), marzipan, dry earth, metallic (old coins) and a tad plastic-y notes in the sweetness, but nice & surprising balance overall. (86)
      W water:  less of a 'dry' impression here, oilier & sweeter, also some fruit & fruit wax, apples & candied lemons, more direct wooden than oriental spices now. (86)
    • Taste
      Mostly smokey & strong alc, behind that vanilla & marzipan, dry but pleasant oak again. (84)
      W water: Smokey (different from Islay for sure, there is lots, but it's less in your face/gentler), but equally sweet, honey, yellow fruits, dry bright oak again, some mineral notes adding a slight bitterness to it. (87)
    • Finish
      More of the palate, plus more pronounced nutty notes, also some clay. (85)
      Later: if given lots of time, this seems to fall apart & turn flat quicker than I would hope for - i.e. after 1-2 hrs, the smoke & sweetness that was nicely integrated & balanced, now sits next to each other, and the sweetness has lost much of its complexity & turned rather artificial/sugar-y. An area where it shows its relative youth I'd suspect. (78)
      W water: More easy/gentle smoke, maybe slightly more earthy than before, as well as more vanilla & honey, green almonds, faint curry powder (power of suggestion...?), very faint clove notes, and again dry bright oak. (86)
