Water brings out thin whorling which almost immediately spreads into lingering mottling. The nose now has more of the lemon, and some artificial florality - "meadow fresh" fabric conditioner. The body gains more of the white pepper and some raspberry and apple notes. The finish gains white pepper.
A decent dram without water, borderline with - one to have with food.
