Notes from a blind tasting.
Well, if I look at the reviews here, there is also a lot "in the Distille euphoria" here.
Slightly alcoholic and fleeting at the beginning, it quickly becomes gentler. Does settle with time, but remains alcoholic a bit snappy. In addition, there are also very rich toffee notes as well as slightly sour overtones and a pinch of dry herbs. Exercise makes it fresher again, sorrel and cooked peaches. Still a little bitter herb, slightly grassy. A touch of mint. Warms fuller, darker, sweeter, but also more alcoholic. Caramell macchiato.
At first he does not open up with water, on the contrary, he completely flattens out. After a long service life, the alcohol tickles, despite the relatively high intake of water in the nose. On the flavors side, nothing has changed, caramel and herbs, thinner than pure. Slightly more sweat than before, so unlike before, it's worth mentioning. Nothing heats up either.
Also in the mouth rather hot. Dark sweetness, malty caramel, in addition to herbs, but dominated here absolutely the alcoholic sharpness, which begins after a few moments. But until then at least the mouthfeel is very nice and full.
With water, I thought at first, I had done it, full of flavor, nice chocolaty, only slightly dry, nice mouthfeel and then he started to burn again. For the mouth, the water has been well worth it, only seems to be thirsty.
After a strong spike, he quickly goes into the finish and is also pretty quick away, except for a leg of the tongue, which is reminiscent of dark chocolate with tart herbs.
Water makes the finish deliciously chocolaty, but it shortens it immensely. Here he loses the bottom line.
