Nose: Bit of a tingle. Very interesting. Sweet and Woody. Artificial grape flavouring. Butterscotch. Rich wood. Leather. A bit difficult to pin down. Some hay. Layered. Not many "natural" smells. But very good.

Taste: Herbal and bitter at first. I want to say Jagermeister. Then some smoke and seaweed. Rounds off with some of the wood from the nose.

Finish: Not very long. Lemon and salt, with a little bit of pepper at the end. An undercurrent of smoke.

Comments: Reasonably refreshing. Very interesting nose, shortish finish, and the taste is not too sweet. In other words, pretty easy to drink, but nothing remarkable. I find the inconsistency between the nose and the palate a little jarring, and I'm not too keen on the bitter herbs. But like everybody else, I love that nose.
