Clear, coppery amber with burnished copper glints.
Orange zest, dried apricot, asphalt-like molasses, vanilla, lemon cake and nutmeg with faintly smoky toasty oak.
Robust and full-bodied with dried fruit, dry spicy oak, white pepper, bonfire smoke and vanilla butterscotch. Adding water wrecks the structure, exposing asphalt-like and hot spice.
Dry and slightly smoky with black pepper spice. Perhaps a tad over aged.
