"The proof is in the driver’s seat the whole way. A dry and spicy aroma that will singe your nostrils. The palate initially tastes of grain and thinned butter. Then bold spice takes over and lights up your tongue for a hot finish. Add some water and you’ll get a little more butter added to the equation."
