Colour: amber. Nose: rich, starting on menthol and honey, pine resin and walnuts, unusually medicinal. Vicks, balsam, a little orange marmalade. Gets then more mentholated and briny. With water: becomes even more aromatic but maybe also a tad rubbery – just a tad. Mouth: rather powerful, with more oak and tannins than on the nose. Develops on caramel and liquorice as well as the trademark honey. Also a smokiness, the whole being drier than on the nose. The mint comes out after that, as well as some fig, date and salted butter caramel. With water: gets rather earthier. Finish: long, salty, maybe a tad drying but otherwise very, very nice. A few vinous hints in the aftertaste. Comments: rather less emphatic than other old officials but still great. Nice smokiness.
