- Nose: Smokey, almost sherry cask matured like, a little bit peat mixed with a heavy red wine like a Rioja, leather, tobacco, with time a bit wine acidity comes forth, water makes it dryer
- Mouth: Oily, buttery, some some and some red fruits, chocolate
- Finish: Smokey, tropical fruits, English wine gummy, oak, water brings out some dried oriental spices and chocolate which keeps lingering
Comment: This works really well and there are lots of tastes and flavors to discover. Water changes the character quite a bit as well. It isn't 100% harmonic with the wine finish I'd say but maybe 90%...
