Nose
Green fruit crispness. Slight acidity. Dusty, chalky top notes. Faint turpentine and resin notes? Balsam? More rounded, toffee notes with water.
Palate
Tart. Peppery. Dusty dryness. (Lemon juice?). Fresher with water.
Finish
Drying and quite abrupt, but not unpleasant. Artichokes. Faintly smoky.
Comment
Puts me in mind of an aged Tequila, with a big splash of lime.

75
Nose
Almond pastries dusted with icing sugar. Very raisiny, with butterscotch and lemon peel too. With time more citrus/sour notes appear, along with more floral character.
Palate
Very drinkable at cask strength, with a corn-like character, grassy and citric (orange perhaps).
Finish
Medium length and dryish.
Comment
A pleasant summery kind of dram.
