Nose
A bit spirity. But a nice toffeish note which casts in some sweetness. Dry hay,An earthy hint. Greengages. A creamy touch,with a hint of peach.
Palate
Crisp,firm. Spices burst out and tease the palate,even burning the tongue.
Finish
Warm,dry,numbing
Comment
Alcohol is too assertive. Water eases the burning sensation and gives an oily feel.

Palate
Clean cooking apples,citrus, peppery spice later.
Finish
Spicy and quite long.
