Nose
More citrus and a hint of wood oil. The nuts have shifted to bran,but water brings out a thicker aroma reminiscent of banana split with chopped hazelnuts.Almond milk
Palate
A soft start with good feel and better structure. Some sweet liquorice. Though dulled a little with water the sweet:dry interplay continues seen on the nose continues in the mouth. A crisp note in the centre flows well.
Finish
Ripe black fruits.
Comment
Good balance.

The wood note which is reminicent of mature logs. Very nutty with bags of brazils and hazelnuts.
Palate
Cream again this time with a freshness. A little dark cherry sharpness.
Finish
Cream with darkfruits.
Comment
Well put together.
