  • A faint whiff of smoke quickly recedes to more refined flavors of baked pineapple, raw pepper, and a light hint of vanilla
  • “The palate has more sweetness and skews to fresh flavors of dry earth and butterscotch pudding”
    —John Rankin, Distiller.com
  • “There’s a fresh fruitiness to this opening aroma that’s void of smoke, road tar, tobacco expectations and is therefore squeaky clean if slightly oily.”
    —Paul Pacult
  • Neat
  • Excellent base for cocktails
