Tasting Notes by TheEnabler

Neat Nose: oak & vanilla, honeysuckle, sweet pepper, really nice licorice. Taste: oak, pepper, spicy/salty caramel. Bit of a bite.

Water Nose: water kind of kills the pleasant nose that it had neat. Taste: taste is somewhat improved with about 8-10 drops of water. Less pepper, more rounded mouth feel. Vegetal. Tiny hint of smoke.
