"Pour this then return to the glass ten minutes later to let the paint thinner aroma blow off, underneath you’ll find a little cream of wheat. The texture is fairly viscous and borders on creamy. The palate is nearly empty save a small taste of artificial vanilla. There are some hard minerals on the finish but they do not last long. Use this as a blank canvas for a cocktail."
