Tasting Notes

"Yes, this is high-proof! After the initial "whoo!" the alcohol dissipates and then the tell-tale sherry nose can be found. Graham crackers, fruit, and leather with spice and tobacco are what come to mind. The moment this spirit hits your mouth it coats you in a sweetness that reminds of adding honey and brown sugar to your oatmeal. Cereal grain, rye spice, honey and vanilla--it's all here balanced by sherry and heat!"
