Review and Tasting
Sampled on 05/04/2021
Clear, pale golden.
Grassy vanilla with vanilla fudge and elegant oak. Faint overripe banana and zesty citrus.
Grassy and delicately spicy with pleasing cream-of-soda rich vanilla. Faint banana, passion fruit, and lemon zest.
Cinamon and black pepper spice invigorate grassy vanilla.
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.
