Nose
Tangy. Malty. Cereal bowl. A big wave of vanilla. And more vanilla! Cream soda. Candyfloss. Lemon juice.
Palate
Crisp. Raw silk feel. Sweet and spicy in the same time; light and pleasant flavour delivery. Vanilla, lemonade, ginger ale as well.
Finish
Dry, quickly fading with a slight astringency. Quite clean.
Comment
A soft drink with alcohol? Pleasant and refreshing. A dash of water is necessary to cut the edges though. But it enhances astringency.

Nose
American ice cream floats, lots of cream and a citrus zest freshness. Honey Nut cornflakes and warm milk. Baker's crust and more sweetness.
Palate
Refreshing and sweet. Chantilly cream, oak shavings, some spices lurk, ginger, cinnamon too.
Finish
Almost vanishes, dries with a zestiness.
Comment
Water helps bring out the malty and sweet side. Certainly an interesting drop.
