Water gives lasting, spreading thick whorls. The nose now has ginger as well as the balsa wood and oranges. The body is warmer - that ginger note really coming through, along with hints of incense candles. The finish is now bigger - vanilla, toffee and ginger.
A decent dram that needs some water - one for discussion amongst whisky fans.
