- Great nose. Dryness on palate was a bit odd but not unpleasant. Thanks alectron for the sample!
Almond oil, flinty, faint smoke. Water brings out waxiness and more smoke. Very nice.
Quite spicy and dry. slightly musty? With water some fruitiness - artificial cherry.
Quite long, dry and spicy again. Nice green/herbal notes after a while.
a bit faint. Tobacco (cigarette) +/o, green grapes o, butan gas o/-, distant smoke/ash (burnt [news]paper) o/-, eggs (not rotten, but fresh/liquid) o/-, wet chalk o/-, freshly caught trout (not fishy) -. (86)
Later: sherry becomes a bit more detectable, also more malty at the same time, floral/artificial sweet (84)
W water: sweeter (most of the weird savoury notes above are gone), a bit more sherry/chocolat-y +/o, mint +/o, some cellulose o (paper/cardboard), (82)
alcoholic spicy/hot, flour-y vanilla +/o, warm apple-mash o, (83)
W Water: less flour-y, more malt & sherry, (84)
quite sweet & syrupy. Again flour / starch & vanilla, fruits, quite a lot of them but ester-y/artificial, with a dark malt note, caramelized onions and some wood (84)
W Water: slightly sweeter but less artificial, more balanced but also less unique. More pleasant & in expected territory now. (85)
