Nose
Huh? This smells like an old-fashioned alcoholic cordial. Acetone, ginger, fruit syrups, spice.
Palate
Light and zesty. Lemon and lime with a weird floral note in the centre. Not as cloying as the nose suggests.
Finish
Clean and zippy.
Comment
I remain baffled, but will be using the remnants of the sample to make a cocktail.

60
Nose
Cellophane, glue sticks, and oily cereal edge, almost pine forests, some sharp green fruits and a little cream vanilla.
Palate
Sticky toffee pudding, but an odd artificial caramel note. It moves to Key Lime pie with squirty cream from a can.
Finish
That odd note continues to linger.
Comment
Don't think this is quite there yet. Possibly more ageing would help knit things together more.
