Nose: A relatively closed nose. Planed wood, light toffee, boat varnish. Linseed oil behind, even putty, and later a lychee-like acidity. With water, the acidity comes up (acid drops), and the nose sweetens. Still a pleasant fresh woodiness or leatheriness, the varnish now supported by artists turpentine. Warm sand. After a while, coffee dregs with brown sugar. Not an obvious nose, however.
Palate: This delicate malt offers fruits, planed wood, and light toffee. The palate is sweet before gaining in acidity.
Finish: Dry; medium-length, with an attractive lingering sandalwood aftertaste. Sharp and well-balanced.
