The leaves of this flush looked quite similar to the 2nd flush- short, thin and brown. The smell was also quite similar (fruity), but with a little bit more of a kick to it. The liquor was a darker sienna color and the taste was definitely more red wine. There were also earthy and oaky notes in the sip and it was the most astringent of the darjeelings I tried. For that reason, it was my least favorite.
