The nose has floral notes, fresh cut grass, hints of green apples and a little sea air. The mouthfeel is thin and oily with some cling. The body has vanilla, raspberry, sea air and a hint of ginger. The finish is lots of ginger!
Water brings out thin, very short lived whorling that doesn't settle. The nose has more green apples, and the body loses the raspberry and gains more vanilla. The finish gains vanilla.
A decent autumnal dram.
