Curious Oriental food note (chow mein?) some coconut and tarry smoke.With water it's all change,with cleaner and zingy lime notes.
Savoury olives and artichoke,sweet and woody,with a distinctive peaty and earthy underlay.
Quite long; rustic,with some salt and pepper.
A solid performer but not in the same league as the 1982 25 Years Old.
