Pure: The first impression is not that of fruits, which are only found later in the form of light, fresh plum and slightly bitter mango, but that of a light sulfurous note like fresh matches. But not unpleasant, the alcohol is well integrated despite the barrel strength. After a while, the nose becomes cooler (mint).
With water, the nose becomes rounder, the plum ripe, with a light green banana.
Pure: The mouth is better than the nose: Slightly bitter from the wood, plus dark chocolate, a little fruit (now the prunes), more dry than sweet.
Water brings more sweetness, plus marzipan and nuts. The dram becomes malty, again dark fruits and spices (Tonka). The melty mouthfeel combines everything into a pleasant overall experience.
Amazingly long, warming, dark, dry for the youngest age. Coffee, wood and malt. Water brings milk chocolate.
