Tasting Notes

"Dried herbs and alfalfa appear initially, followed by green agave and a suggestion of agave nectar sweetness. On the tongue, the nectar slightly blunts the base spirit's peppery agave qualities and adds to them orange peel and a dusting of apple pie spice. It's at once an odd and oddly compelling effort."
