Colour: gold. Nose: very spirity, aggressive, wit whiffs of cologne and a lot of oak/plank behind that. With water: indeed! It really opens up, getting rather superbly smoky, farmy and coastal. Osyters, fresh almonds, wet stones, wet hay, garden bonfire, ‘wet grass smoke’…More and more fresh almonds and seashells . Also patchouli and eucalyptus… Oh, and linseed oil and even turpentine… Mouth (neat): Big notes of cough medicine, something antiseptic, a lot of iodine/salt. Gets then peatier and a tad aggressive again, time to add water. With water: perfect. Liquorice, salt and vanilla, and myriads of tiny nutty/coastal notes. Finish: very long, dry, coastal and a tad resinous now.
