Review and Tasting

Crystal clear.


Spicy and earthy with mushroom, ash and white pepper.


White and black pepper spiced mushroom, with putty, vanilla fudge and cashew nuts.


Pepper spice, mushroom and vanilla fudge.


"Rancio" is a term used to describe subtle flavours in very old cognacs evocative of aged leather, mushroom and nuts. This awamori has pepper spice enlivened rancio.
