Promising nose. Palate hard to tame, disappointing.

Nose: Floral, estery. Lavender. Lemon sherbet. Melon balls. Liquorice. Chocomint. Quite complex. Creamy porridge. Slightly fiery.
Palate: Tangy mouthfeel. Fiery. Reserved maltiness. Water dampens the fire down but disperses the magical fragrances.
