Neat Nose: cherry Twizzlers, deep mellow oak Taste: moderately oily mouthfeel, bit of spice and wood

Did not try with water, I suspect it would kill what little nose/taste we have neat.

I really like the mouthfeel and the cherry/licorice of the nose, but there's not much complexity to this malt. Spicier than the 12 and 18, but missing the grassy, fruity notes from those expressions. Not as spicy as the Nadurra and a thicker body (both good things, in my opinion).
