A nice but unspectacular dram to drink that is way too pricey for its quality. As a drinker I would not pay more than 65 Euro for such a bottle.
The colour is jonquiripe corn and the texture shows very late fat and sticky tears that slowly build some legs. The nose is just floral-herbal with almost no sweet aromas and that is a little too one-dimensional for me.
On the palate the missing sweet flavours (barley sugars mainly) pop up and combine with spicy wooden notes to an easy drinkable but not overly complex profile. Water opens the nose (just a little bit) further and offers now some shy sweet aromas, finally. The taste gets more mellow but the bitter notes during the finish grow too. I am divided about what is better, not sure... After some more sips I am sure now and I like it better when neat (now I get even little shy honey flavours in the finish).
It arrives slightly hot in the mouth but is nicely coating (as the texture promised). The finish is of medium length and adds vanilla aromas and some drying moments (tannins, papers).
