"Brenne's 2008 offering is gentle and well balanced. Butterscotch and rose petal mingle well on the nose for an amiable sweetness. The spirit eases onto the palate with a nice oiliness that is marked by lemon and biscuit flavors. The finish even gives a little chili spice kick to balance the sweeter notes. "
