Head Distiller’s Observations:
Appearance: Straw with legs of oils coating the glass.
Nose: Earthy maltiness & fresh soil, citrus peel, breadcrust, clove, white pepper, caramel, milk chocolate, salted popcorn, barnyard, oak green foliage.
Taste: It is a spice bomb up front, with cloves, white pepper, salted caramel, liquorice, ginger biscuits, lemon zest, & chilli chocolate on the palate.
Finish: Dry, but it leaves a lasting oiliness that holds the spiciness for a long time.
