As it has been opened it is now a lot more bareable without water, though still incredibly harsh. Some nice deep golden toast, and fried eggs with lots of fresh cracked black pepper. With a healthy side of nice tart green apples, and coconut shavings. But a heck of a lot of alcohol burn. With a touch of ash in there too.
Dilute it with a touch of water, and it comes alive:
Oily, green apples, and coconut, with a good bit of vanilla, still got the cracked pepper but a lot sweeter and no longer burning the whole time.
