Nose: White plums, sweet glazed orange slices, burnt pie crust, a fair amount of oak, apricot conserve, butterscotch, hint of nutmeg. Again, you have to work hard to find all that.
Palate: Strawberry, burnt pie crust, grapefruit, rhubarb stalks. Once more, water makes this very unbalanced and on the bitter side.
Finish: Okay but not something you'd want to hold onto forever. Water slaughters anything remotely pleasurable.

Good to read your review. Confirms my impressions when I tastes it at TIBS.
