Nose
Sour. Oaky. A butyric note. Cider cellar. Hint of apple blossom honey. Rounding up in time. The butyric note goes out. Still sour though. Pear cider. Autumnal. Dour with water though.
Palate
A short sweet start then the sourness comes. With more oak. Some liquorice. The “miner's lozenges”. A sweet note with water.
Finish
Rather short. Sweet and sour.
Comment
The effect of water is funny. It hardens the nose and softens the palate at the same time.

Nose
A grassy and light start. Lemon verbena tea, runny honey, glacé cherries, cherry blossom blooms. Aromatic wood and a floral edge.
Palate
Sweet, with rich oak tones. Those glacé cherry and honey notes comes through and the oak spices build up. Water brings more sweetness to a point.
Finish
Smooth, short and sweet.
Comment
An easy gentle dram, just go easy with the water, it does not really need it.
