The nose has oranges, lemons, and hints of polished furniture. The mouthfeel is thin, with no cling. The body has cinnamon, cloves, lemons, apples, pine furniture and puff pastry. The finish is cinnamon and apples.
Water brings out thick, short lived whorling. The nose gains leather and brown toast, and loses the oranges and lemons. The body has less pine furniture and more of the cinnamon, and a hint of marzipan. The finish loses the apples and gains cloves.
An interesting dram to share with friends.
