This is another dram I was fortunate enough to sample.

NOSE: smoky pickled veggies (cucumbers in particular). Vanilla, very delicate, very nuanced. Dry woody nose with fresh fruits underneath those pickles. With time these pickles completely disappear, giving way to floral notes, spices, some strawberry jam, honey dried fruit and shortbread.

TASTE: cooling, sweet, oily, fruity, with nice mineral nature to it. Not too much happening here, however.

FINISH: short and sweet finish with some veggie notes as well.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: a very interesting nose with lots of complexity, but very average taste and finish experience. Is it worth the money it costs? No.

@Ol_Jas it's just a perspective)) Maybe someone more patient who has a whole bottle of this stuff will write something totally different. I, for one, didn't find anything special here. The nose is the best part, since it's so layered with different nuances.
