Nose is spicy, oaty, grassy, and with some sort of huffable solvent. Palate is basically as the nose advertises, with prominent spice. Water opens up greater sweetness and depth and herbal grassyness. Finish continues the theme with pepper. Approved.
Not much on the nose (other than jet fuel). Strong, pucker-inducing palate, but not entirely unpleasant. Water opens up some nice spice but no radical change in flavor. The finish? "Long, strong and bound to get the friction on."
A sweet nose of candy, slightly medicinal. Sweet and spicy on the palate, some black pepper, great sherried sweetness and a bit malty, but also thin. A long but unexceptional finish. Very good, not great.
