Dank grasses. I'm lying down in a barn with essential oil aromatics wafting across me.
So herbal. Smells like tea tree oil. Tastes like all of the smells in a spa, in a glass. All of the oils and fragrances and lotions while getting a massage or facial...in liquid form. Lavender essential oil! And eucalyptus. I almost feel like I shouldn't be drinking it and I should be rubbing it on my body.
The most potent punch of the night! An extra splash of H2O opens to a drinkable and somewhat complex spirit. Sweetness that lingers.
Alluring grape nose like a grappa or cognac. Totally different than the three French spirits we tasted. Taste is more funky and varied than the nose but doesn't ruin it for me. On a later smell I get hay - very strange.
Super herbal, with bite. Because super tea like at the 5-1 ratio.
