Water brings out thick, compact whorling that lingers before dissipating. The nose gains light, crisp smoke and a little light lavender. The body has more lavender, some toffee, and less cinnamon. The finish is lavender, crisp smoke and hint of pear.
A fine dram for starting the end of the evening.
