Review and Tasting


Sampled on 05/04/2021

Appearance:

Clear, pale golden.

Aroma:

Grassy vanilla with vanilla fudge and elegant oak. Faint overripe banana and zesty citrus.

Taste:

Grassy and delicately spicy with pleasing cream-of-soda rich vanilla. Faint banana, passion fruit, and lemon zest.

Aftertaste:

Cinamon and black pepper spice invigorate grassy vanilla.

Overall:

Characterful and very expressive of the sugar cane from which it's made with spicy grassy notes throughout. This grassiness also presents itself deliciously in a classic Daiquiri leaving lingering butter vanilla.
