Nose: Nice soothing smell with slight feel of sour plum, some heavy ABV but just a while and some dried fruits followed through.
With water the ABV felt higher slightly, it also elevates all the other notes
Palate: this has a nice bloom upon entry, BN profile is there hiding behind covered a little by the tar peat with some sherry together, prickly pepperish feeling all the way when liquid on palate, oily, ending with some bitterness
With water, still some prickly pepperish on tongue, but overall balance is beautiful, must have a few drops of water 😋
Finish: medium-long finish, lingering peat with sherry, some ashy feeling
Sample from @weihong_0220
Score : 87, with water 89, WB184172
