Member Ratings and Notes
N: Well, not the most inviting nose, a little rotting fruit along with oak and Vicks Vaporub.
P: Mildly fruity and spicy, but rather weak, almost watery.
F: Fruit continues to build a bit, but still not enough.
Fruity whatever.   Diluting this all the way to 40% did it no favor. 
Nose of white wine, honeysuckle, peaches, raspberries, and apples that are kinda spoiled... and a synthetic component like Silly String.  The palate is pleasantly light and slightly complex and fruity, but not with the depth the nose seemed to hint at.  And that odd synthetic flavor shows up here too.  The finish continues the theme at length, but as far as enjoyability, this is just above ehhh.
